The South Tampa Chamber of Commerce board of directors voted on Wednesday, October 3rd to support the Hillsborough County Schools Referendum for a one-half cent sales tax. This tax will help to facilitate a safe and productive learning environment for students, and to provide a long-term sustainable plan for the Hillsborough County School District.
The Hillsborough County Schools Referendum will provide the necessary funding to
- Make capital improvements and repairs in our existing schools
- Enhance technology in classrooms
- Increase security initiatives to keep students safe
- Create more classroom space for a growing population and address overcrowding in our schools.
