With record turnout, voters overwhelmingly approved the twice-delayed school finance referendums to renew the one cent sales tax for education and authorize the Hall County Board of Education to issue General Obligation Bonds to fund the school system's Ten Year Facility Plan.
"The people of Hall County sent a clear message at the polls on June 9. I look forward to the wise and responsible implementation of the district's Ten Year Facility Plan to provide modern educational infrastructure for the boys and girls of Hall County," said Board of Education Member Mark Pettitt. "Just like the pivotal educational investments of the 1960’s, 1980’s and 1990’s, this crucial investment will pave the way for the future of our community for many generations to come."
Immediate priority projects for the district will likely be the construction of the new Cherokee Bluff Middle School to alleviate overcrowding at the existing Cherokee Bluff Middle & High shared facility, and the construction of new Performing Arts Centers for Johnson High and West Hall High.
Other projects include the replacement of seven existing elementary schools with four new buildings, an Agricultural Center, renovations for Johnson High and East Hall High, among others.
