Half-pennies add up to big changes for Duval's schools
On November 3, 2020, voters overwhelmingly approved the greatest renovation and rebuilding program in the history of public education in Duval County. For the next 15 years, a voluntary half-penny sales tax will fund a facility plan that will accomplish the following:
1) Address more than $1 billion in maintenance that has been deferred more than 10 years as a result of state funding cuts
2) Enable the district to “right size” and cut administrative costs
3) Improve the safety and security of every school
4) Remove most portables in schools with growing enrollments
5) Improve the learning environment for all students.

Our schools. Our community. Our future.
