Half-Cent Sales Tax for Schools on Ballot Nov. 6th

In 2003, the voters of Polk County approved a half-cent sales tax to address critical building and capacity needs of the Polk County Public Schools. These ongoing improvements include additional schools and classrooms to accommodate population growth, modernization of older schools, the replacement of portables with permanent structures, maintenance of all facilities, repairs and enhancements to the buildings and systems, upgrades in technology, and increased student safety. Over the 15 years, this has raised over $560 Million dollars for our students in Polk County. This November, voters get to decide to let the half-cent sales tax continue or let it expire.

To educate yourself on this important issue, you can watch this video on the half-cent sales tax OR click here to visit the Polk Promise website.


Volunteer Background Check Fee to Remain at $25 Through End of 2018

The Polk County School Board has decided that the fee to cover volunteers’ background checks, as well as their badge and handbook, will remain $25 through the end of the calendar year.

Polk County Public Schools will be using more extensive volunteer background checks as part of our security measures to protect students and staff. The district will incur an additional charge for the statewide and national background checks.

However, through the end of 2018, the cost to volunteers will remain $25. We are exploring other funding sources to help offset the cost of background screening for volunteers on an ongoing basis. More information will follow.
