School Districts Revenue Sharing Plan

3 posts in this topic

Not sure if this is worthy of its own topic or not, but in my opinion this story that was just posted tonight on GoUpstate is a BIG deal. For the first time, the seven Spartanburg County school districts look like they are about to agree to a revenue-sharing deal that would spread tax revenue from FILOT agreements to all seven districts, regardless of where the actual project is located. This is a long-overdue, and very important, step:

First of all, the fact that there are 7 school districts is crazy. If there were one or two this wouldn't be an issue. That being said, I think its a good idea to use the faster growing parts of the county to support the education system for the remaining areas.

This is a big deal and will lessen the pressure to consolidate districts, which is probably why it is being pursued.  I'll let others decide whether that last part is a good or bad thing.
