The Bond Oversight Committee works to improve the accountability and transparency of the voter approved General Obligation Bond (Bond) referendum initiative that provides critically needed funding for Broward’s students.

The SMART Program, under the direction of the School Board of Broward County, FL (the District) and Superintendent Robert W. Runcie, has allocated $100,000 towards School Choice Enhancement capital-related projects at each District school. This $100,000 in funding is intended to be used to improve the condition of instructional spaces and/or educational environments.

To ensure equity among schools regarding Broward County Public Schools SMART initiative, a comprehensive Facility Needs Assessment was conducted District-wide. The Needs Assessment provided an objective, data-driven overview of the District as a whole, as well as a strategic planning tool for prioritizing the most critical needs facing our schools.

To encourage greater accountability, transparency, public support and confidence in the use of the general obligation bond funds, and to hold the district accountable for spending decisions, Florida TaxWatch has reviewed this report against the most recent SMART Program schedule and budget and is pleased to present the following report and recommendations.
