LEAD Academy should be getting about $320,000 annually from local sale tax revenue, but it isn’t.
To make sure the money starts coming to the charter school, families and staff from the school spoke to Montgomery County Commission on Tuesday to remind the commissioners that LEAD deserves its share.
Opened in August as Montgomery’s first charter, LEAD Academy serves about 350 students as a public school, free of tuition. As such, according to the commission’s approval of a 1-cent sales tax increase in 2003 to support public education, LEAD qualifies for the tax revenue dispersal.
