“I worked with [Bartow County Superintendent John Harper] and Harry White, our attorney, agreed to draft a resolution that ... basically says every October, the money will be distributed proportionally based on the October [full-time equivalent student] count,” Cartersville Superintendent Howard Hinesley said following Thursday’s work session. “So, if we lose a few students, [Bartow County] will get a little bit more [revenue] and we’ll get a little bit less and vice versa.”
Hinesley said the two local systems modeled the tax revenue distribution method after other systems throughout the state.
Also on the agenda for Monday’s business session, the board is expected to approve an in-state field trip request and two out-state-field trip requests as well as ratify the system’s telecommunications services agreement with the city of Cartersville for “Dark Fiber,” which had been signed on March 5.
The board will hold its regular business session Monday at 6 p.m. in the central office boardroom.
