CALHOUN COUNTY SCHOOLS - 2014 Excess Levy Information - A Road map for the Next 5 Years

The quality of the education delivered by Calhoun County Schools will guide the future of each community we serve.

Calhoun County Schools wants to make sure you are informed about the excess levy before heading to the polls on Nov. 4.
