The Effignham Unit #40 Board of Education is holding a special meeting at 5 p.m. Monday night to discuss district infrastructure. Monday’s meeting will also include a vote on adding a 1%, county-wide sales tax to the April 4th ballot.
Unit #40, and nearby school districts, have been struggling to find long-term funding solutions to pay for aging buildings and facilities. A facilities tax would provide additional funding to all school districts in Effingham County for infrastructure projects. The tax would need to be approved by Effingham County voters.
