Approve the Tentative 2017-18 Facilities Five Year Work Plan
Florida Statute requires each school district to develop and approve a district five-year capital outlay work plan.  The plan must be submitted to the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) prior to October 1st of each year.  The plan must include a schedule of all major repairs, renovations, new planned construction projects, class size information, and the use of portable classrooms in the school district.  The district must also provide projected capital outlay revenues for the five year period.  The Capital Outlay Full Time Equivalent (COFTE) enrollment projections are provided by the FDOE based upon cohort projections from the annual live birth rates within the county.

As required by the interlocal agreements with the local governments, after the tentative work plan is approved by the Board, the work plan is reviewed and discussed with other public agencies including Hillsborough County, the Planning Commission, and the cities of Tampa, Plant City, and Temple Terrace.  These reviewing entities have 45 days to provide comments to the district on the tentative plan.  As appropriate, these recommendations are included in a revised plan that will come to the Board for final approval at the September 12, 2017 School Board meeting, and then will be transmitted to the FDOE for review.  The plan can be changed by Board action at a noticed meeting at which the public has an opportunity to comment.
• Engage and communicate with families and stakeholders • Establish a strong foundation of financial stewardship • Demonstrate "best practices" in all aspects of safety: student, employee, visitor, facility, transportation, and health • Construct and maintain facilities that create an environment conducive to teaching and learning
The Plan identifies $267,691,343 in funded maintenance and major repair/construction projects.  An additional $161,425,329 in new student capacity construction projects is identified. Funding for new capacity projects will be derived from impact fee collections and include: the new Elementary “D” and “E”; classroom additions at Robinson and Sickles High School; the new High School “TTT”; and partial funding for a new Elementary “F”. All of the proposed renovation and remodeling projects in the next 5 years total $281,679,426 and are unfunded.  Debt, buses and other capital expenditures total $512,769,030 for a total 5 year plan amount of $941,885,702.
