Surprise folks, we've got another election happening in 2021. The Community College District of St. Louis, (and St. Louis County Missouri) Special Election has been scheduled for August 3, 2021.
You can read the full press release by STLCC here about how they plan to use the additional operating budget, should it be approved by voters on August 3.
• Focus on providing educational programs and services to the underserved and minority communities of the St. Louis region.
• Repurpose underutilized space to meet the needs of today’s students (many of the College’s facilities were built more than 50 years ago) and create new and functional spaces.
• Keep tuition low and affordable for students, as well as minimize student debt. At $116.50 per credit hour, the College strives to keep education affordable for unemployed or underemployed workers needing training and retraining for the high-wage careers of today.
