    PURPOSE AND EFFECT: This amendment incorporates by reference the full-time equivalent (FTE) student membership reporting instructions publication (FTE General Instructions) for fiscal year 2015-16.

    SUMMARY: Rule 6A-1.0451, F.A.C., is amended to update the FTE student membership reporting instructions publication (FTE General Instructions), as incorporated by reference.

    SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS AND LEGISLATIVE RATIFICATION: The Agency has determined that this will not have an adverse impact on small business or likely increase directly or indirectly regulatory costs in excess of $200,000 in the aggregate within one year after the implementation of the rule. A SERC has not been prepared by the Agency.

    The Agency has determined that the proposed rule is not expected to require legislative ratification based on the statement of estimated regulatory costs or if no SERC is required, the information expressly relied upon and described herein: Based on past agency experience with updating instructions for FTE reporting for school districts in accordance with laws and rules of the State Board of Education, the adverse impact or regulatory cost, if any, does not exceed, nor would be expected to exceed, any one of the economic analysis criteria set forth in Section 120.541(2)(a), Florida Statutes.

    Any person who wishes to provide information regarding a statement of estimated regulatory costs, or provide a proposal for a lower cost regulatory alternative must do so in writing within 21 days of this notice.
