Approve the Final 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 include a schedule of all major repairs, renovations and new construction projects planned and include information about class size and the use of portable classrooms in the school district.  The capital outlay revenues of the district must also be projected.  The Capital Outlay Full Time Equivalent (COFTE) projections are provided by the FDOE based upon cohort projections from the annual live birth rates within the county.

As required by our interlocal agreements with the local governments, after the tentative work plan was approved by the Board on July 18, 2017, the work plan was reviewed and discussed with other public agencies, including Hillsborough County, the Planning Commission and the cities of Tampa, Plant City and Temple Terrace.  The Planning Commission is scheduled to review the plan on October 9, 2017, for a finding of consistency with the comprehensive plan.  Comments received from the reviewing agencies have been attached and are found following the plan document (pages 60-80).  

The attached work plan is presented in the Department of Education format and has been updated from the tentative plan to reflect the most current information available. Projects shown on the final plan have changed to reflect the decrease of $1,705,329 in the projected Public Education Capital Outlay (PECO) Funds allocated after the completion of the tentative plan for a total of $3,436,612.    

As a quick reference, attached (pages 3-16) is a listing showing the individual projects and revenues included in the work plan. 
• Engage and communicate with families and stakeholders • Continuously improve processes and systems • 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 $268,794,515 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”.   Also, a privately funded addition at Shaw Elementary School was outlined in the plan.  All of the proposed renovation and remodeling projects in the next 5 years total $1,113,325,637 and are unfunded.  Debt, buses, general fund transfer and other capital expenditures total $546,136,020 for a total 5 year plan amount of $946,355,864.
