Collier County Public Schools is asking voters to approve a tax-neutral referendum to allow administrators to use capital dollars for operating expenses. The referendum would add a .35 mill operating tax and the District would voluntarily reduce the capital tax by up to .35 mill for the next four years, starting July 2021.
What would the impact be for students? Some capital improvement and maintenance projects would be deferred until there was more funding available. The operating funds will be used to preserve arts, music, career academies, field trips and after-school programs.
