    6A-1.099811Differentiated Accountability State System of School Improvement


    Notice is hereby given that the following correction has been made to the proposed rule in Vol. 45 No. 167, August 27, 2019 issue of the Florida Administrative Register. The proposed notice should've indicated that a SERC was done and provided the following summary: In summary, it is anticipated that school districts will be able to implement the requirements of the rule with minimal costs. School districts have funds available from federal School Improvement Grants, entitled UniSig, and state funds under s.1011.62, F.S., to fund these school improvement activities, as well as other activities set forth in the proposed rule. Moreover, SB 7070 (Ch. 2019-23, Laws of Florida) provides additional funds for these schools for turnaround services. The probable impact on small counties/school districts has some increased cost due to the requirement to provide extended learning opportunities to students from a closed low performing school. However, school districts receive state funding under s. 1011.62, F.S., as well as federal grant funding under ESSA and UniSIG to support additional school improvement expenses. The Agency has determined that the proposed rule is not expected to require legislative ratification based on the information provided in the statement of estimated regulatory costs.
