In this May 2017 Courier file photo, Prescott High School chemistry teacher Todd Harris Jr. speaks to his students. Th state House and Senate agreed Thursday to extend for another 20 years the 0.6-cent sales tax first approved by voters in 2000 for the state’s education sales tax — and the teacher salaries it supports. Without that action, the levy would self-destruct on June 30, 2021, taking with it the more than $670 million a year it now raises — $384 million of what’s collected is specifically earmarked for teacher salaries.
