Education Referendum


Dear Families,


New air conditioning systems, new roofs, new security systems, new tracks, new fields, new buildings… Everywhere I look across our district, I see where the half-penny Education Referendum is being put to use.


I thank you, our teachers and staff thank you, and our students thank you.


The half-penny referendum passed back in 2018. It is a 10-year referendum, so planning and implementing projects from the referendum is an ongoing process. While some projects are wrapping up, others are just in their planning stages. However, there is always something being done. We have 14 major projects that will be taking place this summer and while that’s going on, district staff are busy working on bids and renderings for the projects that will take place in the fall and summer 2025.



Like I said, the work never stops!


We created this email to give you a glimpse at where your dollars are being spent. Of course, you can always get project updates for yourself on our Half-Penny Sales Tax Referendum webpage.


Thank you for helping make us Hillsborough Strong,


Van Ayres
