Half-Cent for Schools

  • The primary goal of the Half-Cent for Schools initiative is to revitalize existing schools so that all Alachua County Public School students have access to safe, comfortable, up-to-date classrooms and other facilities that promote their academic success. The Half-Cent for Schools will also provide some funding to add new educational spaces that will meet the needs of our community into the future. 

    While the district has been able to create some modern, high-quality learning spaces in schools throughout the district, a majority of our classrooms, science labs, media centers and other spaces are well below the standards our students need and deserve.
