Florida Law requires the School Board to adopt a balanced budget each fiscal year for all funds under its jurisdiction: General Fund, Debt Service Funds, Capital Outlay Funds, Special Revenue Funds and Trust & Agency Funds.

The law is very specific in defining the process and timetable to be followed in adopting the budget and ad valorem property tax millage rates. By law, the School Board must conduct two public hearings on the proposed budget and millage rates.
