The purpose of this funding is to expand school-based health services and increase access to health care by funding a pediatric physician and the Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners' salaries and other costs associated with these positions including, but not limited to, travel to continuing education conferences, materials, and supplies needed.  The Full Service School Funds provide direct health services to schools in our district.  This is an annual renewal of flow-through funds from the FLDOH, Hillsborough County to the school district and has been in effect for over 20 years.
• Demonstrate "best practices" in all aspects of safety: student, employee, visitor, facility, transportation, and health
Funds in the amount of $422,772.00 will be available in the General Fund.  For tracking purposes, the project number specific to this agenda item is 3178.  Funds from the state legislature general revenue funds and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) federal dollars will be available July 3, 2017, in the 2017/2018 fiscal year budget in the General Part One Fund.
