Hillsborough County Schools Releases List of Specific School Improvement Projects- WTSP
The school district released a list of projects to be completed should the referendum pass in November. There are over 1,700 projects needed in different schools over the next 10 years. The school board will ask for another countywide vote in March 2019 if voters choose to strike down this referendum.
Call it a wish list of sorts: What projects Hillsborough County Schools will tackle using funds from a half-penny sales tax across the district, if passed.
Voters will be asked to approve the education referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot. If given the go-ahead, the added sales tax would not be charged on groceries or medicine but only on the first $5,000 of large purchases.
