- Can the sales tax that was just passed in 2015 be used to fund the construction of any school facilities?

 

No, that tax was dedicated specifically to salaries and benefits and it funded a raise for all employees based around a $4,000 raise for teachers. The tax has over performed expectations in its first two years because of the economic boom, but the money is still dedicated to that purpose.  What hasn’t already been paid out is waiting in a dedicated fund for future salaries, stipends, and benefits related expenditures.  Detailed accounting of this tax can be obtained by contacting the CPSB accounting department.
