At the Regular Board Meeting on Monday, February 18, 2019, the Hall County Board of Education funded facility improvements at Johnson High School. The work, slated to be completed prior to the start of the 2019-2020 school year, includes a new practice field house for soccer and football and an addition to the band room.
The current practice field house, which was constructed in the 1970's, is undersized and not in good condition. It will be destroyed and a new, larger field house will be constructed on the same site. The new field house will have dedicated locker rooms and office space for both the football and soccer programs along with a shared training room, laundry room, meeting room and storage space.
The band room, which is original to the school (1972) is also severely undersized and in need of expansion. The student demand for this program has increased steadily over the years and the current space is outdated and no longer large enough to facilitate the program.
Funding for these improvements will come from E-SPLOST funds, the one penny sales tax approved by voters.
The Hall County Board of Education has once again cut the tax rate for property owners. The new tax rate is the lowest since 2004 and one of the lowest in Georgia.Show full post
