Revitalizing Alachua County Public Schools
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 Schools and from local property taxes, major facilities improvements are coming to all Alachua County Public Schools.
Below you’ll find a link to our ACPS Facilities Update Story Map, which includes a schedule of the work planned at each school and updates on how that work is progressing. You’ll also find information about the independent citizens’ 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!
