Resolution Relating to Flexibility of Categorical Funding
Florida Statute 1011.62(6)(b) grants flexibility to each school district to amend the district's budget by transferring funds from specific categorical programs to maintain academic classroom instruction. The categorical program is the Researched-Based Reading Instruction funds. This flexibility was used when creating the 2012-13 Adopted Budget for the Operating Fund.
