Thanks to the citizens of Alachua County, the work of creating high-quality learning environments for all our students is now underway.
With the revenues from the Half-Cent for School and local property taxes, major facilities improvements are coming to all Alachua County Public Schools. Many of those projects are already completed or underway. You can find a complete, school-by-school list of all the work planned, timelines and additional updates at our Story Map.
As part of a comprehensive 'reimagining' of Alachua County Public Schools, the district will be reviewing educational programs and facilities at every school with input from the community. ACPS will also be developing a new strategic plan outlining the district's goals and strategies for meeting those goals. That process will also require robust public engagement.
Depending on the results of that important work and other factors (cash flow, construction costs, etc.), the proposed facilities improvement plans outlined here may change.
On this site you'll also find information about the independent citizen's oversight committee that is reviewing all expenditures from the Half-Cent for Schools to ensure the money is being spent as voters intended.
Thank you, Alachua County, for your investment in our community's schools!
