School Tax Impact

Monica Ward is a senior at Godby High School. She, along with her classmates, is celebrating a brand new Junior ROTC building.

The building is just one of many improvements to Leon County schools, improvements that are made possible by the tax payers.

In November of 2002 Leon County added a half cent sales tax, a tax that was voted on by the community.

The public school sales tax is expected to pull in about $200 million over fifteen years.

Thanks to tax payers’ dollars, students can count on a better environment to further their education.

Superintendent Montford says Leon County schools have put nearly $25 million into technology. And without the half cent sales tax, projects like that one would not be possible.
