School Board approves 2020-2021 school calendar

Our School Board recently approved the 2020–2021 school calendar. The calendar needs to work within state laws that determine when the school year must start and end, while balancing several different elements like holidays and breaks.

This quick two-minute video answers our most common questions about the calendar—especially why it has so many unexpected days off in the Spring: Calendar Questions from Hillsborough Schools.

Creating the calendar takes months of planning and a diverse Calendar Committee made up of students, parents, community organizations, business leaders, principals and district staff—around 50 stakeholders in all.

You can find the 2020-2021 calendar at

K-5 Literacy Program Review – Phase 1

The first phase of a substantial Literacy Program Review for Kindergarten through Grade 5 is now complete. We brought in an expert to study every part of the way we’re teaching the elements of literacy—reading, writing and more—and make recommendations.

This is phase one of two; it focuses on perceptions among our teachers and leaders of how we’re doing.

Referendum Results #HalfPennyPromise

Referendum Update

Since the half-penny sales tax Education Referendum passed in November 2018, our school district has received more than $62 million dollars. We have already put $58 million back into our schools! This summer, we replaced 21 air conditioning units, replaced and repaired school roofs and made significant improvements to security. Now that school is back in session, we are continuing to use the Education Referendum money on other projects like outdoor court repairs, playground replacements and waterproofing.

View the list of projects currently under way.
