Dear Parents, Guardians, and Concerned Citizens,

In an attempt to better inform parents and the public of resources that were available to the school, the Florida Legislature enacted Senate Bill 1546, which requires the distrubtion of an annual school financial report to the public. Figures are compiled by the Department of Education using the district's 2012-2013 financial data.
