The three school systems in Jackson County have called for a vote in March 2011 on another round of sales tax funding for education.
If approved by voters, the education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (E-SPLOST) is designed to bring in up to $100 million in education funds for the three school systems to share over a five-year period, starting in 2012, although expectations of revenue are actually much lower.
School leaders from all three systems in Jackson County are calling for a March vote on extending the education special option local sales tax for another five years. Those pennies could bring in up to $100 million by the most optimistic estimates.
