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

THANK YOU! The Education Referendum has passed. Here’s what’s next for our schools.

Investing in Our StudentsFrom Superintendent Jeff Eakins: "Wow, what a night. The people have spoken and they support our students. What a message this sends to our community. It shows the deep care and understanding the people of Hillsborough County have for education, our students, our teachers and staff, and the future of our community. Thank you voters. Thank you taxpayers. Our commitment is to spend your investment wisely."

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.
