In November 2014, Broward County voters approved an $800 million bond referendum that provides critically needed funding for students and schools. Broward County Public Schools has committed to investing the funding in safety, music, art, athletics, renovations, and technology (SMART) at every school.
The Office of Facilities and Construction is tasked with renovations to schools based on the SMART program needs assessment.
Improvements to school facilities include:
- Technology equipment
- Indoor air quality
- School safety systems
- Music and athletic equipment
- Renovations to more than 30 million square feet of school buildings to provide the students with state of the art facilities
A Bond Oversight Committee has been appointed to ensure the accountability and transparency of all projects.
