Title
Hold a Public Hearing on the District's Strategies to Meet the Requirements of the Constitutional Amendment on Class Size

Discussion

During the last Legislative Session the Conforming Bill (CS/HB5101) was passed amending Florida statute 1003.03 (2)(b) to state: " Prior to the adoption of the district school budget for 2010-11, each district school board shall hold public hearings and provide information to parents on the district's website, and through any other means by which the district provides information to parents and the public, on the district's strategies to meet the requirements in subsection (1)."

In compliance with this requirement, the Board held a public hearing on July 20 at the regular School Board meeting and will be holding an additional public hearing at the August 10 regular School Board meeting.

Lee Berry, Deputy Superintendent, will make a brief presentation prior to the Public hearing.
