Hillsborough School District Releases Referendum Wish List- Tampa Bay Times
Hillsborough County Public Schools’ Superintendent Jeff Eakins is making his way around town advocating for the Strengthen Our Schools Hillsborough School Referendum that will be on the November ballot in Hillsborough county. Air conditioning upgrades and replacements, updated classroom technology, and increased security measures are some of the many projects that will be funded if the referendum is passed in November.
The Hillsborough County School District on Friday released a long-awaited, school-by-school list of 1,785 projects to be funded by a proposed half-cent sales tax hike.
The list, now on the district website, includes playgrounds for Anderson Elementary School, carpets and floors for Chiles Elementary, new stage lights and a repaved parking lot for Madison Middle School, and hundreds of air conditioning upgrades districtwide.
