Baker Co. residents to vote on education 'SPLOST'

BAKER CO., GA (WALB) - The Baker County School Board is hoping voters will approve the education "SPLOST" during next week's elections.

The revenue from the one-percent sales tax would go to the school system.

Superintendent Torrance Choates says this would allow the school system to do some much needed improvements, including purchasing new buses, and even Ipads for students.

"We are getting to the point where we need new school buses and so this will help the school bus drivers as well," says Superintendent Torrance Choates.

He says those are just a few things the board helps to do for the school.
