CATCH UP, DUVAL. While most districts have alternative funding sources for facilities, Duval County does not. That’s why the Duval County School Board is asking voters on the Nov. 3 ballot to approve a half-penny increase in the sales tax over the next 15 years. This will create an even playing field with other districts.
LOTTERY DOESN’T HELP. Some folks still wonder where the lottery dollars go. Most of it goes to Bright Futures scholarships and higher education…and the legislature makes that decision. It doesn’t help Duval facilities, which is why voters will be asked to approve a half-penny sales tax on the Nov. 3 ballot.
