Welcome to “Perspectives from the Dais”

This will be an ongoing series of articles by Tom Edwards to communicate with the community about the issues discussed at Sarasota County School Board meetings. Education is a crucial aspect of any community, and Tom knows how important it is for stakeholders to understand the decisions being made and their impact on students, families, and staff.

Breaking down complex topics and providing insights directly from the school board dais is a valuable way to engage and inform the community. This approach will help demystify the often lengthy and tedious meetings, making it easier for people to stay informed and involved.
By sharing his thoughts and perspectives, Tom Edwards will bridge the gap between the school board’s decision-making process and the community’s understanding of these decisions.

Engaging with the community in this way will contribute to a more informed and connected electorate, which is crucial for the success of any educational system and for ensuring that the best interests of students, families, staff, and the wider community are served.
