While regular SPLOST
programs have been funding capital improvements for county government
infrastructure since 1985, changes to state law in 1997 allowed county schools
to propose their own capital improvement programs to voters. As a result, Gwinnett
voters have approved four E-SPLOST programs (1997, 2001, 2006, and 2011) to
help pay for school construction.
Together, these four programs
have paid down debt, built and equipped thousands of new classrooms, and bought
land for dozens of new schools. The current E-SPLOST is expected to raise about
$876 million before it expires in 2017.
