TEAM TESORO Education PLATFORM
Preamble: Team Tesoro believes that all students deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential. A strong public school system is critical not just for our students, but also for the success of our town. Measured investments in Trumbull’s public schools ensure our property values rise, our community thrives, and our students flourish.
A long-time advocate for Trumbull’s education system, First Selectman Tesoro continues to focus on our students and their success.
Team Tesoro has and will continue to:
Invest in our high-quality school system by appropriately funding the Board of Education. Over a two-year period, First Selectman Tesoro has increased funding to the Board of Education by 5.6% (or $5.6 million).
Prioritize security in Trumbull’s schools. First Selectman Tesoro developed a plan in collaboration with the Board of Education to put forward a capital bond to update security infrastructure in the Trumbull Public Schools.
Strengthen and respond to the schools’ infrastructure needs. First Selectman Tesoro requested that the Board of Education develop a 10-year capital plan for updating and renovating our elementary and middle schools.
Fight for Trumbull’s share of education funding from the state of Connecticut. First Selectman Tesoro worked diligently with our State legislators and State elected officials to mitigate the impact of reductions in state education funding, advocating that Trumbull receive our fair share of state funds.
Continue to collaborate with the Board of Education to find areas of shared services.
Education is a cornerstone of a thriving town. In order for Trumbull to stay competitive and affordable, we must invest–in a fiscally prudent manner–in our public schools. It is the right thing to do for our children and this investment protects our property values.
First Selectman Tesoro and her administration will continue to prioritize education so that all of our students have the opportunity to succeed and Trumbull remains a desired place to live.
Vote Row A on November 5th for Team Tesoro – a vote for civility, transparency, and common sense.
