Where does "Anderson County's Local Option Sales Tax" fit into the SC Constitution?

The Greenville News published this piece how Anderson County School District 1 has been able to afford many "items on their want list" with their penny sales tax ...

How does this tax fit into the SC State Constitution?

Article 11 section 3 ...

System of free public schools and other public institutions of learning.

The General Assembly shall provide for the maintenance and support of a system of free public schools open to all children in the State and shall establish, organize and support such other public institutions of learning, as may be desirable.

If the "support" is to come from "The General Assembly (i.e. the State of SC Legislature) how can "a county" possibly "support" the schools - according to our State Constitution?

Where in any document whatsoever can it be found that "Anderson County shall supplement education"?
