Progress Report: Hillsborough County School District Making Progress, But Not Yet Eligible For the State's Seal of Best Financial Management

Report 04-38, June 2004

Report Summary

  • On October 15, 2002, the Hillsborough County School Board voted to implement the action plans in the Best Financial Management Practices Review (OPPAGA Report No. 02-39). OPPAGA developed the action plans to help the Hillsborough County School Disrict implement the best practices within two years, which would make the district eligible to receive the Seal of Best Financial Management from the State Board of Education.
  • Since October 2002, the district has made progress on 36 of the 38 action plans (95%). Although the district has fully implemented 12 of the action plans and partially implemented 24 others, it currently is not eligible for a Seal of Best Financial Management.
  • OPPAGA will again review the implementation status of action plans based on the districts' next status report.
