102 (1) COMPUTATION OF THE BASIC AMOUNT TO BE INCLUDED FOR
103 OPERATION.—The following procedure shall be followed in
104 determining the annual allocation to each district for
106 (o) Calculation of additional full-time equivalent
107 membership based on successful completion of a career-themed
108 course pursuant to ss. 1003.491, 1003.492, and 1003.493, or
109 courses with embedded CAPE industry certifications or CAPE
110 Digital Tool certificates, and issuance of industry
111 certification identified on the CAPE Industry Certification
112 Funding List pursuant to rules adopted by the State Board of
113 Education or CAPE Digital Tool certificates pursuant to s.
115 1.a. A value of 0.025 full-time equivalent student
116 membership shall be calculated for CAPE Digital Tool
117 certificates earned by students in elementary and middle school
119 b. A value of 0.1 or 0.2 full-time equivalent student
120 membership shall be calculated for each student who completes a
121 course as defined in s. 1003.493(1)(b) or courses with embedded
122 CAPE industry certifications and who is issued an industry
123 certification identified annually on the CAPE Industry
124 Certification Funding List approved under rules adopted by the

129 Education. For CAPE industry certifications that do not
130 articulate for college credit, the Department of Education shall
131 assign a full-time equivalent value of 0.1 for each
132 certification. Middle grades students who earn additional FTE
133 membership for a CAPE Digital Tool certificate pursuant to sub

147 certification is not a fundable certification on the
148 postsecondary certification funding list, or the dual enrollment
149 certification is earned as a result of an agreement between a
150 school district and a nonpublic postsecondary institution, the
151 bonus value shall be funded in the same manner as other nondual
152 enrollment course industry certifications. In such cases, the
153 school district may provide for an agreement between the high
154 school and the technical center, or the school district and the
155 postsecondary institution may enter into an agreement for
156 equitable distribution of the bonus funds.
157 c. A value of 0.3 full-time equivalent student membership
158 shall be calculated for student completion of the courses and

160 Certification Funding List and approved by the commissioner
161 pursuant to ss. 1003.4203(5)(a) and 1008.44.
162 d. A value of 0.5 full-time equivalent student membership

166 calculated for CAPE Acceleration Industry Certifications that
167 articulate for 30 or more college credit hours pursuant to CAPE
168 Acceleration Industry Certifications approved by the
169 commissioner pursuant to ss. 1003.4203(5)(b) and 1008.44.

173 This allocation may not be used to supplant funds provided for
174 basic operation of the program.
175 3. For CAPE industry certifications earned in the 2013-2014
176 school year and in subsequent years, the school district shall
177 distribute to each classroom teacher who provided direct
178 instruction toward the attainment of a CAPE industry
179 certification that qualified for additional full-time equivalent
180 membership under subparagraph 1.:
181 a. A bonus of $25 for each student taught by a teacher who
182 provided instruction in a course that led to the attainment of a
183 CAPE industry certification on the CAPE Industry Certification
184 Funding List with a weight of 0.1.
185 b. A bonus of $50 for each student taught by a teacher who
186 provided instruction in a course that led to the attainment of a

194 provided instruction in a course that led to the attainment of a
195 CAPE industry certification on the CAPE Industry Certification
196 Funding List with a weight of 0.5 or 1.0.
198 Bonuses awarded pursuant to this paragraph shall be provided to
199 teachers who are employed by the district in the year in which
200 the additional FTE membership calculation is included in the
201 calculation. Bonuses shall be calculated based upon the
202 associated weight of a CAPE industry certification on the CAPE
203 Industry Certification Funding List for the year in which the
204 certification is earned by the student. Any bonus awarded to a
205 teacher pursuant to under this paragraph is in addition to any
206 regular wage or other bonus the teacher received or is scheduled
207 to receive. A bonus may not be awarded to a teacher who fails to
208 maintain the security of any CAPE industry certification
209 examination or who otherwise violates the security or
210 administration protocol of any assessment instrument that may
211 result in a bonus being awarded to the teacher under this
213 (t) Computation for funding through the Florida Education
214 Finance Program.—The State Board of Education may adopt rules
215 establishing programs, industry certifications, and courses for
216 which the student may earn credit toward high school graduation
