School Board approves 2020-2021 school calendar

Our School Board recently approved the 2020–2021 school calendar. The calendar needs to work within state laws that determine when the school year must start and end, while balancing several different elements like holidays and breaks.

This quick two-minute video answers our most common questions about the calendar—especially why it has so many unexpected days off in the Spring: Calendar Questions from Hillsborough Schools.

Creating the calendar takes months of planning and a diverse Calendar Committee made up of students, parents, community organizations, business leaders, principals and district staff—around 50 stakeholders in all.

You can find the 2020-2021 calendar at

September is National Suicide Prevention Month

September is National Suicide Prevention Month. All month, mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members unite to promote suicide prevention awareness. Unfortunately, youth suicide is a serious problem. Suicide is the leading cause of death among school age youth. In 2015, approximately 18% of 9th to 12th graders seriously considered suicide with 9% having made an attempt one or more times.

However, suicide is preventable. Youth who are contemplating suicide typically give warning signs of their distress. Most important is to never take these warning signs lightly or promise to keep them secret.

Referendum Results #HalfPennyPromise

Referendum Update

The first revenue check from the Education Referendum’s half-penny sales tax arrived in early April. Work is underway in many of our schools to deliver on our #HalfPennyPromise. Already, we’ve seen new playgrounds constructed and tracks and gymnasium floors refurbished. Planning has also advanced on our larger projects, like air conditioning replacements and roof repairs. Construction on those projects will begin this summer when students are off campus.

View the list of projects currently under way.
