PCS Public Forum

When: Wednesday, September 22, 8-9 a.m.
Where: Online via Zoom and Facebook Live Stream

After presentations from our school superintendents, the Danville Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors voted to support the referendums in each locality that authorize a 1% sales tax increase to support Danville Public Schools and Pittsylvania County Schools. The Board believes that strong educational systems are crucial to our business community as these graduates will become a part of our future workforce. This workforce will contribute to our economic vitality and support strong communities throughout Danville and Pittsylvania County. The Board urges our members to educate themselves about the issue and vote “yes” in November to the ballot items.
