Cairo- Every school in the county will be affected by the SPLOST. The money will pay for new classrooms, dining facilities, gyms, and in some cases, total renovations of some schools.

       Grady Schools Superintendent Steve Wooten says it's important to the county's economic base to have top-notch a top-notch educational system. "We want our schools to be something that when someone walks into our community and they look at our schools, they'll say that's where I want my child to go. And, so, businesses will follow that.", he says.

       Wooten also says that thanks to the SPLOST, within one-year, there will be no trailers serving as classrooms in Grady County.
