We seek special teachers for these positions.

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.
