Instructions for Parent Petition

A Hillsborough County Public School (HCPS) parent may file a petition to object to an instructional materials adoption.

No petition will be accepted or considered after the deadline.

Pursuant to section 1006.28, Florida Statutes, all proper petitions will be reviewed by the HCPS School Board at a public hearing. The petitioner will be provided written notification of the date and time of the public hearing. The School Board’s decision after convening this hearing is final and not subject to further petition or review.

To start the petition, please log in with your HCPS mySPOT account. If you do not have a mySPOT account, you may register for an account at https://myspot.sdhc.k12.fl.us/public/register.
