|Approve the Projected 2017-18 PECO and Millage Projects|
In 2016 the Florida Legislature appropriated funds to support Public Education Capital Outlay (PECO). The District received an allocation of $4,894,472 for the 2016-17 fiscal year. The district staff is projecting an allocation of $3,436,612 for 2017-18 PECO funds.
Millage funds are received from local property tax assessments. Millage funds also provide payment for debt service, site and bus purchases, and other obligations. The 2017-18 projects identified on the attached sheets are the result of prioritizing recommendations from facility assessments, maintenance staff, Area Superintendents and individual schools. The total millage funds are projected as $135,631,170.
