Agenda Item #40


Title
Recommendations to Address Schools Over 100% Utilization

Discussion

The Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning and School Concurrency includes a "Tiered" Level of Service (LOS) for our schools.  The LOS, sometimes referred to as "capacity utilization", is defined as a school’s student membership at the Fall FTE Count (10/17/08) divided by the school’s factored satisfactory permanent capacity in FISH at the time of the Fall FTE Count.  As can be seen in the Tiered LOS Chart below, we must achieve a 100% LOS (student membership less than or equal to the capacity) in all schools by the 2011-12 school year.
