Your Change Makes Big Changes in TCSS

Today, Troup County School System (TCSS) announced plans to unveil an initiative that seeks to educate the community about Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (ESPLOST). The initiative, Your Change Makes Big Changes in Troup County Schools, is designed to help the community:

  1. Differentiate ESPLOST funding versus general operating expenses
  2. Distinguish previously funded projects such as additions at LaGrange High and the new Ethel W. Kight Elementary School.
  3. Identify future capital outlay projects like a new elementary school and state-of-the-art athletic facility
