1-Mill Property Tax

  • Manatee County voters generously approved a 1-mill referendum in March 2018. The funds were used for an additional 30 minutes of instructional time for students each school day, pay increases for teachers and other instructional staff, expansion of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs and to assist local charter schools.

    In November 2021, Manatee County voters overwhelmingly approved a renewal of the 1-mill referendum. The renewal included an additional focus on funding for arts programs across the school district. The emphasis on the arts transformed the STEM allocations into funding for STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
