What is an ESPLOST?

✔1% sales tax for the next four years on goods and services purchased in Fayette County specifically to support our excellent public schools.

✔Must be used on hard assets such as buildings, books, buses and computers. Cannot be used for salaries or other operating costs.

✔Does not apply to internet purchases.

✔If you purchase anything in another metro Atlanta County, you pay an ESPLOST that supports that school system.

Visitors shopping or dining in Fayette will be supporting our schools. READ OUR LETTER

Continuing to Invest in Technology

How it works:

  • Student would take home computer on loan,
    like a text book

  • All books would eventually be “e-books” reducing
    costs over time

    adopted this standard
