The January opening event takes place at the Ritz Theatre and Museum from 5:30-8 p.m. on Thursday, January 12, 2012. It is free and open to the public.
But the goal is not simply to talk. From those ideas, a volunteer-led Community Advisory Team will create an action plan that truly represents our entire city.
The process began in November and December with conversations with teachers and students, and will ramp up in January with two additional public events and the begining of small conversations in individual homes, places of worship and at community organizations. A special day of conversations for parents takes place on January 21 at the Ritz Theatre.

Here at the Jacksonville Public Education Fund, we would like to take a moment to thank all of the supporters and partners that have made this effort a success to date! We are incredibly thankful for the generous support of our donors, the partnership of organizations such as the Cummer Museum and the enthusiasm of the many people who have participated in the campaign so far! Exciting things lie ahead in 2012!
