2 forums on school district plans for $1.3B in sales tax this week

Have questions about how the Palm Beach County School District would spend the $1.3 billion if voters approve a penny sales tax increase in November? Monday and Tuesday night, the district will host two more community meetings to give you answers.

Schools Superintendent Robert Avossa and his staff will be taking questions from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at John I. Leonard High School in Greenacres Monday. Tuesday, the forum moves to Olympic Heights High west of Boca Raton at the same hours.

The school district is asking voters to approve a penny sales tax increase.

The meetings began in August with a meeting at Palm Beach Gardens High and days later Royal Palm Beach High hosted. Another meeting was held last week at Atlantic High in Delray Beach.
