 1         1.  Are classified as administrative personnel or

 2  managers under section 1012.01, Florida Statutes; and

 3         2.  Do not perform any instructional duties.

 4         (2)(a)  Based on the prior year's enrollment, the

 5  department shall classify the school districts as follows:

 6  the 20 districts with the fewest number of

 7  full-time-equivalent students shall be classified as

 8  small-sized districts; the 10 districts with the largest

 9  number of full-time-equivalent students shall be classified as

10  large-sized districts; and the remaining districts shall be

11  classified as medium-sized districts.

12         (b)  By July 1 of each year, the department shall

13  establish a ratio for the school districts in each of the

14  three size classifications. The ratio must specify the maximum

15  percentage of noninstructional personnel to

16  full-time-equivalent students which a school district may

17  employ.  However, the department shall provide for an

18  adjustment in the ratio for a district that contains a larger

19  percentage of small schools than districts of equivalent size.

20  The department may not establish a ratio that exceeds the

21  average ratio of noninstructional personnel to

22  full-time-equivalent students which existed within a

23  particular district size classification during the 2002-2003

24  school year.

25         (c)  In addition, the department shall determine the

26  average annual salary, including the cost of benefits, for

27  noninstructional personnel employed by school districts in

28  each of the three size classifications.

29         (3)  The department shall determine each school year if

30  any school district exceeds the maximum number of positions

31  allowed for noninstructional personnel. For each position that

                                  2
