236.08103  Equity in School-Level Funding Act.--

(1)  This section may be cited as the "Equity in School-Level Funding Act."

(2)(a)  Beginning in the 2000-2001 fiscal year, district school boards shall allocate to each school within the district at least 50 percent of the funds generated by that school based upon the Florida Education Finance Program as provided in s. 236.081 and the General Appropriations Act, including gross state and local funds, discretionary lottery funds, and funds from the school district's current operating discretionary millage levy.

(b)  Beginning in the 2001-2002 fiscal year, district school boards shall allocate to each school within the district at least 65 percent of the funds generated by that school based upon the Florida Education Finance Program as provided in s. 236.081 and the General Appropriations Act, including gross state and local funds, discretionary lottery funds, and funds from the school district's current operating discretionary millage levy.

(c)  Beginning in the 2002-2003 fiscal year, district school boards shall allocate to each school within the district at least 80 percent of the funds generated by that school based upon the Florida Education Finance Program as provided in s. 236.081 and the General Appropriations Act, including gross state and local funds, discretionary lottery funds, and funds from the school district's current operating discretionary millage levy.

(d)  Beginning in the 2003-2004 fiscal year, district school boards shall allocate to each school within the district at least 90 percent of the funds generated by that school based upon the Florida Education Finance Program as provided in s. 236.081 and the General Appropriations Act, including gross state and local funds, discretionary lottery funds, and funds from the school district's current operating discretionary millage levy.

Total funding for each school shall be recalculated during the year to reflect the revised calculations under the Florida Education Finance Program by the state and the actual weighted full-time equivalent students reported by the school during the full-time equivalent student survey periods designated by the Commissioner of Education. If the district school board is providing programs or services to students funded by federal funds, any eligible students enrolled in the schools in the district shall be provided federal funds. Only those districts that initially applied for charter school district status, pursuant to s. 228.058, and have been approved by the State Board of Education are exempt from the provisions of this section.

(3)  Funds allocated to a school pursuant to this section that are unused at the end of the fiscal year shall not revert to the district, but shall remain with the school. These carryforward funds may be used for any purpose provided by law at the discretion of the principal of the school.

(4)  Recommendations made by the Governor's Equity in Educational Opportunity Task Force shall be reviewed to identify potential categorical funds to be included in the district allocation methodology required in subsection (2).

(5)  Funds appropriated in the General Appropriations Act for supplemental academic instruction to be used for the purposes described in s. 236.08104 are excluded from the school-level allocation under this section.
