Meet our Districts
Across the nation, there are school districts implementing College Readiness Systems models. Learn more about one of these districts that is working with the College Board to create a culture of college readiness in their schools.
The Hillsborough County Public Schools has a vision, and that vision is to be recognized for providing the best education in the nation. Located in Tampa, Florida and serving nearly 193,000 students in 209 schools, the district joined the College Board's EXCELerator Schools model in 2007. The leadership of Superintendent of Schools Mary Ellen Elia has successfully guided the first year of implementation, and Hillsborough implemented the model in all of its 70 middle and high schools. The College Board looks forward to being part of many future successes for Hillsborough students.
