Notice of School Board meeting changes

Starting on February 19, Hillsborough County School Board meetings will change to a 4 p.m. start time. For years, we have heard from the public to start our meetings later to better accommodate work schedules and to allow students to attend. Guidelines for public comment are also changing. All speakers signed up for public comment will have a total of three minutes to speak to the School Board regardless of the number of items they wish to address. We will continue to have employee input at 6 p.m. to provide district staff an opportunity to address questions or concerns to the School Board.

Education Referendum - How will the money be spent?

Funds from the new Education Referendum are restricted in how they can be used. Generally, the funds cannot be used for recurring "operating expenses” such as teacher pay, school bus fuel, and utility bills. Sales tax funds are generally limited to "capital expenses,” which are long-term physical improvements to buildings or equipment. Our tax referendum funds would be spent on a list of specific projects, which are limited to:

  • Air conditioning replacements and overhauls
  • Maintenance and renovation projects
  • Safety and security improvements
  • Technology upgrades
  • New construction to relieve overcrowding

More information is available on the Education Referendum Project website

Attendance Boundary Changes
