The School Board of Broward County, Florida (SBBC) voted to approve a referendum for a question on the August 28, 2018 ballot regarding a levy of ad-valorem taxes for essential operating expenses.

In a unanimous vote taken during an online meeting on July 2nd, the BTU Executive Board endorsed the School Board's referendum.

The School Board intends to allocate:

  1. 72% or more of all available funds for compensation of teachers and school related staff (including all education professionals, educational support professionals, bus drivers, assistants, and food service workers);
  2. Up to 20% for security (school resource officers and security staff);
  3. Up to 8% for essential programs in our schools, such as additional guidance counselors, social workers, and behavioral staff.

All compensation will be subject to collective bargaining. The public will have an opportunity to comment on dispersal of funds generated prior to distribution.
