WCPS to hold information meetings about school projects and proposed 1/4¢ sales tax

This past week, the Wayne County Board of Education and Wayne County Board of Commissioners approved 40 school projects to be completed over the next five years if the 1/4¢ sales and use tax is approved by voters during the March 3 primary election. In the coming days, a series of community meetings will be held to help school communities and the public become more informed about the school projects and the proposed 1/4¢ sales tax. 

Below is the meeting schedule. Parents with students at Edgewood Community Developmental School, Wayne Academy, Wayne Early/Middle College High School and Wayne School of Engineering are encouraged to attend the meeting closest to where they live.
