Beekman Charter School Tax Approved

Morehouse Parish -- Voters passed a tax meant for Beekman Charter school.

Out of 242 votes, 60 percent voted yes and 40 percent voted no.

In 2012, voters approved a 5 mil tax for the school to be levied until 2023. This new tax would increase the mil to 10 for a period of 35 years. School officials say it's needed to improve facilities when they expand to include 11th and 12th grade next fall.
