Section 236.0873, Florida Statutes 2001
236.0873 Allocations for school volunteer programs.--
(1) The department is authorized to allocate an amount as prescribed annually by the Legislature to each district for support of school volunteer programs. Districts shall provide funds for the program on at least an equal matching basis. Prior to the distribution of these funds, each school district shall submit a plan of volunteer activities to the Department of Education. Each district may use these funds for any purpose which directly supports volunteer activities as described in its district plan and as approved by the schoolwide support group which meets all criteria provided by s. 229.58 in each school participating in the program. In any district which does not have such a schoolwide support group, plans shall be approved by the districtwide support group which meets the criteria of s. 229.58.
(2) Each district that submits a plan shall be allocated a base amount of $2,000. The remainder of the appropriation shall be prorated on the basis of the number of elementary and secondary schools offering basic programs in such districts and shall be added to the base amount for the district.
