Broward school officials push for property tax referendum approval

Broward County school district officials held a news conference Tuesday in a push to get a new property tax referendum approved by voters in August’s primary election.

The proposed one mill increase has been dubbed the “Secure the Next Generation” renewal. It would replace the current half-mill referendum that’s soon to expire.

“The renewal of this referendum will allow Broward County Public Schools to continue to recruit and retain teachers,” Broward Superintendent Vickie Cartwright said.

If approved by voters, officials say the new measure would increase teacher compensation for recruitment and retention, and maintain and enhance school resource officers and other safety staff.
