A political action committee called “Citizens Supporting Classroom Excellence” was formed by Fort Worth business leaders Thursday to support a proposed $490 million bond package for Fort Worth schools.
The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce filed paperwork with the Fort Worth school district that documents the creation of the specific-purpose committee. That committee will raise funds to help promote the proposed school bond, said Andra Bennett, spokeswoman for the chamber.
More details about the three propositions in the bond package were posted on a new Capital Improvement Program link on the school district's website today.
The school board is expected to vote at a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Friday on whether to call the referendum for Nov. 5.
