Never before has the District been confronted with such strict requirements on school space until now. This year, planning to meet school capacity requirements continues to be impacted by Class Size Reduction,
school concurrency, and the State Educational Plant Survey.
- As a result of Broward’s declining enrollment, the state is requiring all classroom space to be used before new construction funding can be approved
through the State Educational Plant Survey. The District is moving forward with eliminating existing relocatables. The relocatable removal plan will
decrease the overall Districtwide school capacity.
- The Second Amended Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning (SILA) is a contract between the School Board, Broward County, and its Municipalities which also impacts space utilization. The SILA implements school concurrency. School concurrency requires school enrollment to be concurrent with future planned residential growth. BCPS’s Growth Management Department monitors the SILA, which establishes the Level of Service (LOS) in Broward County at 100% of a school’s gross capacity until the 2018/19 school year, after which it will transition to 110% of a school’s permanent capacity.
