Proposed Allocations for the 2021-2022 School Year

Superintendent Broskie reviewed the annual allocation process and timeline.  Changes to current allocations were highlighted using the attached presentation.  This allocation package considered decreased student enrollment as well as potential growth.  Mrs. Bullock requested careful consideration to ensure we are still meeting the needs of students at Clay Hill Elementary, Keystone Heights Elementary, Wilkinson Junior High, and Keystone Heights Junior-Senior High, in addition to recommending a second PreK unit be added to McRae Elementary, due to its remote location and lack of like services in that area.  Mrs. Clark discussed her biggest concern being services in Exceptional Student Education. 

Controlled Open Enrollment for 2021-2022

Superintendent Broskie pointed out a change from prior years in capacity assessment moving from 85% to 80% to allow the district to plan for future growth and establish efficient attendance zones.  Additionally, new schools would not be subject to COE until operational for three years.

Ratify Lutheran Services Florida Standard Agreement with the School Board of Clay County FL SEDNET

Bruce Bickner, School Board Attorney, explained that this contract with Lutheran Services Florida (LSF) supports services to students and is supervised by The Multi AgencyNetwork for Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disabilities (SEDNET).  LSF receives federal and state funds and then contracts with school districts to monitor, locate, and work with family counseling, mental health counseling, and drug addiction treatment.  SEDNET receives referrals of students needing services, locates service providers to assist students, and then pays for those services through LSF.  Ratifying the contract will allow the superintendent to approve amendments.
