Learn more about the upcoming education referendum

Investing in Our StudentsEducation has a direct impact on everyone in our community. When we invest in our schools and our students, our entire community profits. It results in higher incomes, better jobs, rising property values and a healthy economy.

Right now, because of inadequate state funding, our students face a future in aging, crowded schools and our community faces a $2 billion challenge. The half-penny sales tax education referendum on the November 6 ballot would generate approximately $131 million per year for ten years that would be spent on specific projects to improve our public schools.

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.
