Section 1010.215 of the Florida Statutes requires school districts to report to parents and to the public certain financial information in the form of a yearly school financial report addendum. The 2012-2013 School Financial Report Addendum has now been added to your individual school's website. In order to comply with the statute requiring us to properly notify parents of the availability of this report we are requesting that you include the location of the report in your next monthly newsletter or school communication. Please also include that paper copies are available at school site and district office.
