On Tuesday, November 8, Peoria county voters will consider whether to support The Peoria County School Facilities Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the ½% sales tax would generate $9 million annually to be shared among all Peoria County public school districts, based on enrollment. The Peoria Public Schools would receive approximately $4.2 million annually. The revenue is to be used specifically for school building improvements. The Peoria Public Schools building and grounds staff has assessed the needs of each building in the District. Here is the plan for Roosevelt Magnet School.
