Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Pasco school election results are final



It was mostly a formality, seeing as his name was the only one on the ballot. But Kurt Browning, the former secretary of state, is now officially the superintendent elect of Pasco County schools. He received 173,190 votes, more than anyone else on the Pasco County ballot. Write-in candidates received 5,475 votes, or 3 percent.

Voters also agreed to renew the Penny for Pasco sales tax for another decade. The estimated $226 million the tax will generate for the school district will help pay for school renovations and classroom technology improvements.

Browning will be sworn in at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 20, along with School Board members Joanne Hurley and Alison Crumbley, who won new terms in August.
