School SPLOST Meeting at Dodgen

The upcoming Cobb education sales tax referendum and project list will be discussed at a Feb. 11 informational meeting.

The Cobb Education SPLOST IV referendum is the subject of a Feb. 11 community meeting at Dodgen Middle School.

Local parent leaders will address educational funding issues and Cobb Board of Education and Cobb County School District officials will be available to answer questions about the $717 million project list at the meeting, which takes place at 6:30 p.m.

Dodgen is located at 1725 Bill Murdock Road in East Cobb.

Cobb voters will go to the polls on March 19 on whether to renew the one-cent sales tax to pay for school construction and maintenance projects. The current SPLOST III collection period ends at the end of this year; SPLOST IV would cover 2014-18.

Among the big-ticket items is $40 million for renovations at Walton High School, including a new gym and a new fine arts center, as well as a replacement for East Cobb Middle School.

Other renovations call for new gyms at Lassiter, Pope and Wheeler high schools and the possibility of a replacement elementary school in the East Cobb area.

To view the entire project list, please see the attached PDF file.
