New High School TTT will Help Relieve Overcrowding in South County Area

New TTT High School Groundbreaking CeremonySchool Board members, community leaders and design and construction professionals will join Superintendent Jeff Eakins in a ceremonial "first dig,” to break ground on a new high school--the first high school built in our district in more than ten years.

Proposed boundary changes for "TTT" High School will be effective August 2020. No proposal is final until School Board approved. School Board readings are scheduled for two upcoming board meetings: December 4, 2018 and January 15, 2019.  To review the proposed information and maps, please visit

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

Performance Audit of Hillsborough County Public Schools

Investing in Our StudentsThe School Board voted on August 24, 2018 to place a referendum for a half-cent sales tax for capital needs of public schools on the November 6, 2018 ballot.

Florida Statutes require that a performance audit of the programs addressed by the referendum be conducted by the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability (OPPAGA) and the results of that audit be posted on the District's website 60 days prior to the Election.

Pursuant to the requirements of section 212.055(10), Florida Statutes, we have received and are posting for your review the Performance Audit for Hillsborough County Public Schools .

The Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability (OPPAGA) selected McConnell & Jones LLP to conduct a performance audit of the programs associated with the surtax resolution adopted by the Hillsborough County School Board on August 24, 2018.

Proposed Policy Updates

Hillsborough County Public Schools is seeking approval of proposed revised and new policies.

The proposed policies may be viewed by clicking the "More Info" link below.  A hard copy is also available in the Government Relations Office located at 901 E. Kennedy Blvd., Tampa.
