Dr. Judy Gilreath, superintendent of Whitfield County Schools, has been joined by other district leaders to tour the schools and community sharing facts about the school district's needs that can be addressed using ESPLOST revenue. Click the link below to see the superintendent's presentation.
The presentation includes information about how education is funded by local, state, and federal revenue. The presentation (provided as a PDF) also provides some background about ESPLOST in Georgia as well as what ESPLOST revenue can and cannot be used for in the schools. For example, ESPLOST revenue cannot be used to pay teacher salaries or benefits. What it can be used for is new construction, renovations, and additions as well as technology and infrastructure improvements.
