In unofficial results, with 100% of 156 precincts counted, the E-SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax for Education) was passed by a wide margin of 74.69% to 25.31% in the countywide election on Nov. 3, 2015. 

The measure will continue the penny tax that has been in place since first approved by voters in 1997. Previously, voters approved renewals in 2001, 2006, and 2011. The current E-SPLOST sunsets on June 30, 2017. The newly approved extension will fund projects from 2017 to 2022. (See "The Plan" story below for details.)

Over the years, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) students and school communities have benefited from the E-SPLOST which has provided thousands of needed classrooms in nearly 60 new schools and nearly 80 school additions, as well as technology improvements that are essential to teaching and learning.

The E-SPLOST is collected on all retail sales in Gwinnett County so that everyone who makes a purchase in the county, including visitors, contributes to the support of local schools.

By law, an E-SPLOST can be used only for certain capital projects, like buildings, furnishings, buses, and computers. It cannot be used for salaries or for the day-to-day operational expenses of a school system.
