Our three-day Literacy Symposium allowed teachers to participate in workshops and hear from nationally recognized keynote speakers about the importance of reading and proficiency for student success.

Every teacher makes a difference. Watch as four Hillsborough County Public Schools educators are surprised by a student who says they made an everlasting impact on their lives. Thank you, teachers!

Congratulations to Jennings Middle School Reaching Teacher Renee Graham on being selected to win a set of Tampa Bay Rays tickets! We can't thank the Rays enough for supporting our staff during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Welcome to HCPS from Superintendent Van Ayres
