The 2020-2021 to 2024-2025 District Facilities Work Program, often referred to as the Five-Year Work Plan, provides the Florida Legislature with detailed data regarding the School District's projected sources of capital funds and proposed uses of those capital funds for the next five years. It also provides projected Capital Outlay Full Time Equivalents (COFTE), student capacity and capital funding requirements for the Ten-Year Long-Range Plan and Twenty-Year Long-Range Plan.

The Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning and School Concurrency requires transmittal to the municipalities/county at least 15 days prior to the Board meeting. The draft Five-Year Work Plan was transmitted to the municipalities/county through the Capital Outlay Committee on October 30, 2020.

The first year of the Five-Year Work Plan is based on the School District's budget for FY 2020-21 and the Ten-Year Capital Outlay Funding Plan.  

The draft Five-Year Work Plan does not include the renewal of the sales surtax since the effective date is as of October 1. The revenue and expenditures will be included in next year’s Five-Year Work Program if the proposed sales surtax renewal is approved by the voters on November 3.

The Five-Year Work Plan includes educational facilities impact fee funding and project schedules for five capacity projects.  Each of the projects below are budgetted through impact fee allocations that have been approved by the Educational Facilities Impact Fee Benefit District Advisory Committees. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the variability of enrollment projections, the budgets for capacity projects were based on last year's projections, but they could be postponed to later years (other than the Cocoa Jr/Sr High Building Addition and the Viera Elementary School that were completed this fiscal year).  The following projects are listed in the report under capacity project schedules:

  • Central (Viera) area elementary school project close out expenses in FY2020-2021.
  • Cocoa Jr/Sr High School Building Addition project close out expenses in FY2020-2021
  • South area elementary school budgeted for planning, design, and construction starting in FY2024-25.
  • Central area secondary capacity project budgeted for planning and design in FY2020-2021 and construction in FY2021-2022.
  • South area elementary capacity project budgeted for planning and design in FY2020-2021 and construction in FY2021-2022.
  • North area elementary capacity project budgeted for design in FY2020-2021 and construction in FY2021-2022.
