Superintendent’s Presentations
Dr. Margaret A. Smith, superintendent, shared the following information:
State Education Budget Highlights: legislative session ended May 8 with an approved State
education budget; revenue side has many facets – 1) Volusia received $20.5 million, or
approximately 5%, from federal stabilization (AARA) funds, 2) State accessed two trust funds
to provide additional funding for prekindergarten-12 public education, 3) an additional .25 mill
from capital budget was transferred into operating budgets (.25 mills was transferred from
capital for this year); noteworthy points – State revenue continues to go down and the
additional federal revenue is temporary and non-recurring.
Minutes The School Board of Volusia County, Florida
        May 12, 2009 – Regular Session                                                  Page 6

2009-10 Volusia County Budget Impact: receiving $9.7 million less due to student enrollment
decline and continued impact of the District Cost Differential (DCD); need to reduce the
budget $20-22 million due to increased expenses for health insurance, utilities, etc., the
impact of additional charter schools and other factors; property values down significantly
across the State and County – funds appropriated by the legislature were based on 12-13%
less property values, not current 18-25% decrease; need prudence in preparing budget
because the district may get a mid-year cut as we have the past two years.

State Waiver for Federal Stabilization Funds: Florida’s waiver approved May 12; funds
guaranteed for one year; second year probable, but not guaranteed; three sources of federal
dollars – two sources are for existing programs, IDEA and Title I, and include constraints and
the third source is the stabilization funds in the general operating budget; Commissioner of
Education and Chancellor called a special meeting in Tampa for teams from all school
districts where guidelines were given for each of the funds; the district has to apply for the
federal stabilization funds even though the legislature has rolled them into our budget as
revenue; tremendous amount of accountability, monitoring and required reporting is
formidable.

Second Quarter 2009 Volusia County Economic Development Update: unemployment
doubled; no growth in local government and schools; noted the amount of dollars earned
highly dependent on level of education; 10% unemployed but some growth in workforce;
employment by City statistics; commercial construction on rise; residential construction down
- residential permits lowest level in memory; high home foreclosures in first two quarters as
compared to 2008; Volusia County economy struggling.

Dr. Smith restated that upcoming budget development workshops were scheduled for May
15 and June 23 and concluded that the regular board meetings and workshops were
available to the public by live audio streaming. Board discussion ensued and included
comments that the State needs to develop long-term funding for public education and the
Call to Action town meetings were very beneficial as the legislators heard the strong
message from the citizenry in support of public education.

FY 2009-10 Capital Budget and Five Year Work Plan
Dr. Robert Moll, deputy superintendent for financial and business services, Ms. Saralee
Morrissey, director for site acquisition and intergovernmental coordination, and Mr. Russell
Tysinger, director for maintenance and operations, presented the following information
regarding the 2009-10 capital budget and Five Year Work Plan: revenue projection
assumptions; Fiscal Year (FY) 2002 through projected FY14 property tax revenue and sales
tax revenue; FY03-projected FY14 impact fee revenue; FY10 revenue projection
comparison; appropriation projection assumptions; FY10 appropriation comparisons –
possible federal stimulus funds for “shovel ready” projects; FY10 transfers comparisons;
FY10 summary; April 2007 Certificates of Participation (COPS) original projects; June 24,
2008 COPS first revision; Capital Outlay Five Year Work Plan proposed revisions; and 2007
COPS second revision for consideration. Ms. Morrissey stated every .25 mill transferred
from the capital budget and moved into the operating budget equates to $8.2 million; last
year $8.2 million was transferred and this year the capital budget will lose an additional $16.4
million – the equivalent construction cost of a full-size elementary school. Capital budget
transfers do not include additional declines in sales tax, property tax evaluations, Public
Education Capital Outlay (PECO) funds and impact fees. Dr. Moll stated classroom
additions add permanent capacity and allows the district to retire portables which is a
savings to the capital budget; he also discussed ongoing preparations in regard to the class
size reduction amendment. Board discussion ensued throughout the presentation. Ms.
Morrissey stated the Interlocal Agreement requires the district to meet with local
governments and the Oversight Committee regarding the school district’s capital budget.

priority and that Dr. Smith, who also serves as president of the Florida Association of District
School Superintendents, had a direct line of communication with the Commissioner of
Education which was very beneficial. Board discussion ensued. Dr. Smith emphasized the

appreciation to Mr. Huth for his work in Tallahassee. Dr. Smith also thanked school board
members for their presence and stated the meetings with staff, parents and the community

Bond as keynote speaker. Ms. Lankford expressed appreciation to our business partners
who have supported our students and teachers in such a generous manner and highlighted
the Crystal Apple Teacher Appreciation programs by the DeLand and the Port Orange/South
Daytona Chambers of Commerce, the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Engineering
Scholars program that will serve thirty-two rising high school seniors this year and the
awarding of eight teacher scholar grants from Stetson University. Ms. Lankford, representing
the Central Florida Public School Boards Coalition, attended the Super Regional Partnership
Conference (Tampa Bay Partnership and Central Florida Regional Partnership) and stated
one of Central Florida Regional Partnership’s six quality of life indicators is education; she
felt this was due to the Coalition’s leadership and best practices. Ms. Lankford also served
as a volunteer substitute teacher at DeLand High. Mrs. Smith visited teacher Janet Gray’s
outdoor environmental classroom at Manatee Cove Elementary and encouraged everyone to
visit; she also enjoyed the Very Special Arts Talent Show and the FUTURES Caribbean
Party fundraiser. Mrs. Smith applauded FUTURES for the many ways they benefit the
district and expressed appreciation for the Student/Staff Recognition luncheon. Responding
to Chairman Smith’s request, Dr. Smith detailed additional application and reporting
requirements required by the federal stabilization dollars that were appropriated by the
Florida Legislature to the district; applications for the funds will require the same guiding
principles as Title I and IDEA and must be tied to student achievement as proven by data on
financial and program reports. Dr. Smith continued that because Volusia is a large school
district with a myriad of programs additional staff will be required to fulfill these
responsibilities to have successful applications and reporting mechanisms.
