Hillsborough County Public Schools and district offices will be closed Monday, March 18th through Friday, March 22nd for Spring Break. Regular hours will resume Monday, March 25th. Students return to school Tuesday, March 26th.
On February 3, 2014, the District posted a letter on this website and sent an email notification to all contractors and vendors required to be cleared through the Jessica Lunsford Act, of changes that would be put into place by the end of March 2014.
This letter is the updated information, as we have a definite date when the conversion and changes to the method of payment accepted by the School District will take place. Effective March 21, 2014, all contractors and vendors who have not completed the fingerprinting process will be required to pay for fingerprinting. All payments prepaid through Cogent will no longer be accepted after March 20, 2014 and all refund requests must go directly through Cogent and your credit card provider.
The District will accept one money order, credit or debit card payment for the total amount of the Jessica Lunsford Act process -$93.00. This amount includes State and District badges. A $4.95 bank /convenience fee will be added to all credit/debit card transactions.
