Florida School Board Members form “8isGREAT.org” political committee in favor of school board term limits and other K-12 policy

Tallahassee, Florida

June 4, 2018

Three current elected School Board Members have formed a political committee to promote the passage of proposed Florida Constitutional Amendment 8. Amendment 8 consists of three K-12 public education reforms, including term limits of 8 years for school board members. “8isGREAT.org” is headed by the main sponsor of the proposed Amendment on the Constitution Revision Commission and Collier County School Board Member, Erika Donalds. Commissioner Donalds is joined by Indian River County School Board Chairman, Shawn Frost, and Duval County School Board Member, Scott Shine, as executive board members.

Together they are building a grassroots coalition of concerned citizens and organizations who believe that passage of Amendment 8 is vital to modernizing Florida’s public education system and making it more responsive to the needs of students and parents.

President Donalds of 8isGREAT.org offered the following:

“Amendment 8 is Great for Florida’s future, and we are committed to communicating that message to all Floridians. As school board members, we are convinced that fresh ideas and diverse opportunities for innovation are essential to creating a system of public education that works for every student. When it comes to the policy necessary to deliver that change, Amendment 8 is Great!”

Fundraisers are being planned in major Florida cities for the months of July and August, and a fully modern campaign is in the works.
