   16         (a) Services funded by the allocation may include, but are
   17  not limited to, tutorial and after-school programs, student
   18  counseling, nutrition education, and parental counseling. In
   19  addition, services may also include models that develop a
   20  culture that encourages students to complete high school and to
   21  attend college or career training, set high academic
   22  expectations, inspire character development, and include an
   23  extended school day and school year.
   24         (b) Prior to distribution of the allocation, a school
   25  district, for a district turnaround school and persistently low
   26  performing schools that use a franchise model; a hope operator,
   27  for a school of hope; or the charter school governing board for
   28  a charter school, as applicable, shall develop and submit a plan
   29  for implementation to its respective governing body for approval
   30  no later than August 1 of the fiscal year.
   31         (c) At a minimum, the plans required under paragraph (b)
   32  must:
   33         1. Establish comprehensive support services that develop
   34  family and community partnerships;
   35         2. Establish clearly defined and measurable high academic
   36  and character standards;

   39         4. Describe how instructional personnel will be identified,
   40  recruited, retained, and rewarded;
   41         5. Provide professional development that focuses on

   44         6. Provide focused instruction to improve student academic
   45  proficiency, which may include additional instruction time
   46  beyond the normal school day or school year.
   47         (d) Each school district and hope operator shall submit
   48  approved plans to the commissioner by September 1 of each fiscal
   49  year.
   50         (e) For the 2018-2019 fiscal year, a school that is
   51  selected to receive funding in the 2017-2018 fiscal year
   52  pursuant to s. 1002.333(10)(c) shall receive $2,000 per FTE. A
   53  district-managed turnaround school required under s.
   54  1008.33(4)(a), charter school authorized under s.
   55  1008.33(4)(b)2., district-managed charter school authorized
   56  under s. 1008.33(4)(b)3.a., school of hope authorized under s.
   57  1008.33(4)(b)3.b., and franchise model school authorized under
   58  s. 1008.33(4)(b)4. are eligible for the remaining funds based on
   59  the school’s unweighted FTE, up to $2,000 per FTE or as provided
   60  in the General Appropriations Act.
   61         (f) For the 2019-2020 fiscal year and thereafter, each
   62  school district’s allocation shall be based on the unweighted
   63  FTE student enrollment at the eligible schools and a per-FTE
   64  funding amount of up to $2,000 per FTE or as provided in the
   65  General Appropriations Act. If the calculated funds for
   66  unweighted FTE student enrollment at the eligible schools exceed
   67  the per-FTE funds appropriated, the allocation of funds to each
   68  school district must be prorated based on each school district’s
   69  share of the total unweighted FTE student enrollment for the
   70  eligible schools.
   71         Section 29. Paragraph (c) of subsection (3) and subsection
   72  (4) of section 1008.33, Florida Statutes, are amended to read:
   73         1008.33 Authority to enforce public school improvement.—
   74         (3)
   75         (c) The state board shall adopt by rule a differentiated
   76  matrix of intervention and support strategies for assisting
   77  traditional public schools identified under this section and
   78  rules for implementing s. 1002.33(9)(n), relating to charter
   79  schools.
   80         1. The intervention and support strategies must address
   81  efforts to improve student performance through one or more of
   82  the following strategies: and may include
   83         a. Improvement planning;
   84         b. Leadership quality improvement;
   85         c. Educator quality improvement;
   86         d. Professional development;
   87         e. Curriculum review, pacing, and alignment across grade
   88  levels to improve background knowledge in social studies,
   89  science, and the arts; and
   90         f. The use of continuous improvement and monitoring plans
   91  and processes.
   92         2.In addition, The state board may prescribe reporting
   93  requirements to review and monitor the progress of the schools.
   94  The rule must define the intervention and support strategies for
   95  school improvement for schools earning a grade of “D” or “F” and
   96  the roles for the district and department.
   97         (4)(a) The state board shall apply intensive intervention
   98  and support strategies tailored to the needs of schools earning
   99  two consecutive grades of “D” or a grade of “F.” In the first
  100  full school year after a school initially earns two consecutive
  101  grades of “D” or a grade of “F,” the school district must
  102  immediately implement intervention and support strategies
  103  prescribed in rule under paragraph (3)(c) and, by September 1,
  104  provide the department with the memorandum of understanding
  105  negotiated pursuant to s. 1001.42(21) and, by October 1, a
  106  district-managed turnaround plan for approval by the state
  107  board. The district-managed turnaround plan may include a
  108  proposal for the district to implement an extended school day, a
  109  summer program, or a combination of an extended school day and
  110  summer program. Upon approval by the state board, the school
  111  district must implement the plan for the remainder of the school
  112  year and continue the plan for 1 full school year. The state
  113  board may allow a school an additional year of implementation
  114  before the school must implement a turnaround option required
  115  under paragraph (b) if it determines that the school is likely
  116  to improve to a grade of “C” or higher after the first full
  117  school year of implementation.
  118         (b) Unless an additional year of implementation is provided
  119  pursuant to paragraph (a), a school that has completed 2 school
  120  years of a district-managed turnaround plan required under
  121  paragraph (a) and has not improved its school grade to a “C” or
  122  higher, pursuant to s. 1008.34, earns three consecutive grades
  123  below a “C” must implement one of the following options:
  124         1. Reassign students to another school and monitor the
  125  progress of each reassigned student.;
  126         2. Close the school and reopen the school as one or more
  127  charter schools, each with a governing board that has a
  128  demonstrated record of effectiveness. Such charter schools are
  129  eligible for funding from the hope supplemental services
  130  allocation established by s. 1011.62(18).; or
  131         3. Contract with an outside entity that has a demonstrated
  132  record of effectiveness to operate the school. An outside entity
  133  may include:
  134         a. A district-managed charter school in which all
  135  instructional personnel are not employees of the school
  136  district, but are employees of an independent governing board
  137  composed of members who did not participate in the review or
  138  approval of the charter. A district-managed charter school is
  139  eligible for funding from the hope supplemental services
  140  allocation established by s. 1011.62(18); or
  141         b. A hope operator that submits to a school district a
  142  notice of intent of a performance-based agreement pursuant to s.
  143  1002.333. A school of hope established pursuant to this sub
  144  subparagraph is eligible for funding from the hope supplemental
  145  services allocation for up to 5 years, beginning in the school
  146  year in which the school of hope is established, if the school
  147  of hope:
  148         (I) Is established at the district-owned facilities of the
  149  persistently low-performing school;
  150         (II) Gives priority enrollment to students who are enrolled
  151  in, or are eligible to attend and are living in the attendance
  152  area of, the persistently low-performing school that the school
  153  of hope operates, consistent with the enrollment lottery
  154  exemption provided under s. 1002.333(5)(c); and
  155         (III) Meets the requirements of its performance-based
  156  agreement pursuant to s. 1002.333.
  157         4. Implement a franchise model school in which a highly
  158  effective principal, pursuant to s. 1012.34, leads the
  159  persistently low-performing school in addition to the
  160  principal’s currently assigned school. The franchise model
  161  school principal may allocate resources and personnel between
  162  the schools he or she leads. The persistently low-performing
  163  school is eligible for funding from the hope supplemental
  164  services allocation established under s. 1011.62(18).
  165         (c) Implementation of the turnaround option is no longer
  166  required if the school improves to a grade of “C” or higher.
  167         (d) If a school earning two consecutive grades of “D” or a
  168  grade of “F” does not improve to a grade of “C” or higher after
  169  2 full school years of implementing the turnaround option
  170  selected by the school district under paragraph (b), the school
  171  district must implement another turnaround option.
  172  Implementation of the turnaround option must begin the school
  173  year following the implementation period of the existing
  174  turnaround option, unless the state board determines that the
  175  school is likely to improve to a grade of “C” or higher if
  176  additional time is provided to implement the existing turnaround
  177  option.
