The Duval County School Board is again asking voters to pitch in for public schools. Board members voted 6 to 1 Tuesday to put a property tax increase on voters' August ballot. The vote comes two months after a half-cent sales tax for school infrastructure took effect. Superintendent Diana Greene says the district is restricted in how it can use the sales tax funds, only for capital projects.
