A Message from the Superintendent
Dear Hendry County Community:
I want to take a moment to thank each of you for supporting our efforts in providing the best educational systems for the children of Hendry County School District. There is no question that great teachers and involved parents and guardians are the core to a student’s success, but the environment in which they learn also plays a vital role. Our schools serve as the centerpieces in our communities and we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the support of our community. I am calling on each of you for your help and support.
Our community is growing at an exponential rate, leaving many of our schools over-crowded and in dire need of improvements. Upgrading our schools improves every student’s chance for success, which is why I am proposing a Half-Cent Sales Tax.
The Half-Cent Sales Tax would be shared by all, including visitors who pass through, not just the citizens living in Hendry County. The funds generated from the half-cent sales tax would support much needed improvements such as flooring, HVAC, surveillance equipment, access control, and school technology. It would also help pay debt service on large capital projects such as roofs, LHS building additions and much more.
This Half-Cent Sales Tax initiative is just one of many resources that will help ensure our children’s success as students which in turn will lead to productive and contributing citizens in the future of our community.
Thank you for your support.
Hendry County School District
