Title

Florida Statute 200.065 requires school districts to adopt their budgets within prescribed time schedules (see attached). In order to meet these requirements, the dates, times and locations for the Board workshop and two public hearings are being recommended for approval. These three dates were selected in order for the meetings to be held on separate nights from regularly scheduled board meetings.
