(Nashville, TN) Governor Haslam has signed HB 1288 allowing municipalities to form their own school districts.

Previously, the House approved HB 1288 on a 70-24 vote.

The Senate followed with a 24-5 approval.

Voters in places like Shelby County can go to the polls again to determine if they want their own municipal districts and whether they will fund them with additional taxes.
