Senator Bo Watson on Thursday will continue a series of town hall meetings that provide Tennesseans the opportunity to participate in a review of the state’s education funding formula and share what matters most to them. The meeting, at the Collegedale Commons, will help create a more student-centered funding approach that incentivizes positive outcomes, ensures all students are served at a high level, empowers parents to engage in their child’s education and reflects the values of our community, said officials.
Additionally, the fourth and final session in this series is Feb. 3 at the Highway 58 Volunteer Fire Department. Previous meetings were held in Red Bank and Hixson.
Thursday, Jan. 27, 6-7:30 p.m.
The Commons – Entry Pavilion
Swinyar Drive, Collegedale, TN 37363

Senator Watson said feedback is crucial in his role on the Funding Review Steering Committee.
The funding formula hasn’t been updated in about 30 years. Public schools need to be well-equipped to prepare students for lifelong success. The state's continued success depends on good stewardship of resources today, said officials.
The town halls are open to the public, and advance RSVP is requested for space considerations. Guests can RSVP at this link: bowatson.info/education.
