Agenda Item #27


Title
2015-16 to 2019-20 District Facilities Work Program

Discussion

The 2015-16 to 2019-20 District Facilities Work Program, often referred to as the Five-Year Work Plan, provides the Florida Legislature with detailed data regarding the School District's projected sources of capital funds and proposed uses of those capital funds for the next five years. It also provides projected Capital Outlay Full Time Equivalents (COFTE), student capacity and capital funding requirements for the Ten-Year Long Range Plan and Twenty-Year Long Range Plan.

Notes:

  1. Per Florida Statute, the Work Program must be updated and submitted to the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) by October 1st of each year.  FDOE has agreed that submittal may be delayed this year due to the late approval of the state budget by the legislature. 
  2. Per our Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning and School Concurrency, the Work Program must be submitted to the Capital Outlay Committee (COC) for review by September 1st, each year. The COC has been notified that this submittal will be delayed this year due to the late approval of the state budget by the legislature.  The Work Program was submitted to the COC on September 18th for their review.  No comments have been received from the COC.
  3. Per Florida Statute, the Work Program is adopted by reference into the annual update of the Capital Improvements Element (ICE) of all (non-exempt) local governments' Comprehensive Plans.
  4. A capital project may be included in the Work Program without being included in the current approved Educational Plant Survey if local funds (sales surtax, impact fees, etc.) are used to finance the project.
  5. Per our Interlocal Agreement for Educational Facilities Impact Fees, a project must be included in the Work Program to qualify for the use of Educational Facilities Impact Fees.  
  6. The first year of the Work Program is based on the School District's budget for FY2015-16, approved on September 3, 2015.  The second through fifth years are based on the Capital Funding Plan provided by Financial Services, dated September 4, 2015.

A Program Guide is attached to provide the rationale, criteria and assumptions upon which the Work Program was based, including notes for sections that are not self-explanatory.
