If approved by voters, the 1 cent sales tax would last five years or until the Muscogee County School District collects $223 million to complete a variety of capital projects, including five new schools — a new Carver High, a new middle school, two new elementary schools and a fine arts academy. Other projects include additions to Northside High and Richards Middle and athletics and technology upgrades across the system.
