The School District of Lee County is inviting parents, interested parties and the community to two public forums – one on Sanibel – about the sales tax referendum on the November ballot.

The first will be held May 1 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Next Level Church in Fort Myers.

The second will be held May 3 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at The Community House.

Lee County Superintendent Dr. Greg Adkins and School Board Member Chris Patricca will present “Change-for-Change, the Facts about the School Board’s Half-Cent Investment in our Children.”

Topics to be covered include:

– Capital need

– Why a sales tax?

– How will the money be spent?

There will be time set aside for question-and answer sessions after the presentations.
