Prior to the initial and continuing disbursement of charter school capital outlay funds available by legislative appropriation, charter schools and sponsors are required to certify that statutory eligibility requirements provided in Section 1013.62, Florida Statutes, are met.
Beginning in FY 2011-12, this certification will be achieved through an online portal similar to the Charter School Accountability Report currently required by the Office of Independent Education and Parental Choice pursuant to Section 1002.33(9)(l), Florida Statutes. Submission of the Capital Outlay Plan by other means is no longer required for the continuing disbursement to schools that remain eligible into the new fiscal year. A hard copy of the Capital Outlay Plan will be required for newly eligible schools only. Information and instructions for the online certification is forthcoming via office memorandum.
If a charter school has closed, terminated operations, or is otherwise ineligible for capital outlay funds beginning July 1, 2011, please notify the Office of Educational Facilities by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
