The Cobb Education SPLOST IV referendum is the subject of a Feb. 11 community meeting at East Cobb's Dodgen Middle School.
Local parent leaders will address educational funding issues and Cobb Board of Education and Cobb County School District officials will be available to answer questions about the $717 million project list at the meeting, which takes place at 6:30 p.m.
Dodgen is located at 1725 Bill Murdock Road.
Cobb voters will go to the polls on March 19 on whether to renew the one-cent sales tax to pay for school construction and maintenance projects. The current SPLOST III collection period ends at the end of this year; SPLOST IV would cover 2014-18.
Among the big-ticket items is $40 million for the rebuilding of Walton High School, including a new gym and a new fine arts center, as well as a replacement for East Cobb Middle School.
Other renovations call for a new gym at Wheeler High School and the possibility of a replacement elementary school in the East Cobb area.
