Charleston Metro Chamber Wins Big for Area Schools
The Charleston (S.C.) Metro Chamber of Commerce had a lot to celebrate on Election Day. The chamber's successful Yes4Schools voter education campaign led to the extension of Charleston County’s Education Capital Improvement Referendum. Voters approved extending the referendum by 68 percent.
The Education Capital Improvement Referendum will extend a one cent sales tax for school construction for an additional six years.
Issued as a strategy to fight overcrowding in schools, this sales tax extension will help provide funding to ensure educational settings are safe, up-to-date, and conducive to learning. The referendum’s project list, which includes 35 school facilities across the district, will allow for new construction as well as the expansion of existing overcrowded facilities.
