Charter Schools to Share Referendum Funding, Court Rules
Written by Abraham Galvan
Florida’s 3rd District Court of Appeals ruled last week that Miami-Dade County charter schools are indeed eligible for funding approved through a 2018 voter-approved public school system referendum.
This ruling reverses a lower court decision, which sided with the Miami-Dade School Board’s position that charter schools are ineligible to receive the funding from a referendum that voters passed in November 2018 to levy an additional 0.75 mills of property taxes for four years to improve pay for educators and to bolster school safety.
