Agenda Item #44
Resolution Relating to Flexibility of Categorical Funding
Florida Statutes grant flexibility to each school district to amend the district's operating budget by transferring funds from specific categorical programs to help maintain academic classroom instruction. The District had anticipated additional revenue reductions for 2008-09 and was waiting to ensure that no additional cuts were going to take place before preparing the resolution for Board action and the final dollar amount.
Approve the attached resolution authorizing the flexible use of instructional materials categorical funds in the amount of $3 million to assist in balancing the budget.
