Agenda Item #6

Item Title
Adopt the 2008-09 required local effort mill levy

The district's Required Local Effort (RLE) is subtracted from the gross calculation of Florida Education Program (FEFP) dollars.  Millage rates are also adjusted because required local effort may not exceed 90 percent of a district's total FEFP entitlement.  In order to received state funding, school districts must levy the local property tax millage set by the Legislature.

Recommended Action
Motion to adopt the required local effort mill levy of 5.161 which exceeds the rolled-back rate by 8.81 percent.

Financial Impact
Revenue to the District in the amount of $54,207,674 in Fund 100.
