“The Pinellas County Schools Referendum directly affects each and every one of our students by providing resources for multiple programs and initiatives. I want to personally thank Pinellas County taxpayers, who have made it abundantly clear they support education and our shared vision of 100% student success.”
- Dr. Michael A. Grego, Superintendent of Pinellas County Schools

Education matters:
Supporting Pinellas County students

Referendum money has funded reading, art and music programs, provided up-to-date technology and textbooks, and helped recruit and retain quality teachers in Pinellas County Schools since voters originally approved the half-mill tax in 2004. Taxpayers renewed the measure in 2008 and 2012, both times by large margins. All referendum money goes directly to Pinellas County Schools.

The Independent Citizens Referendum Oversight Committee (ICROC) meets regularly to oversee the distribution of funds. Committee members have consistently, and unanimously, agreed that Pinellas County Schools is using the funds as intended by voters.
