Archived School District Reports

OPPAGA has reviewed the efficiency and effectiveness of several of Florida's 67 school districts through the state's School District Performance Review Program, which the Florida Legislature later replaced with the Sharpening the Pencil Program. The purpose of these reviews was to improve school district management and use of resources and to identify cost savings. Reviews conducted under the Sharpening the Pencil Program determined whether school districts were using a set of Best Financial Management Practices developed by OPPAGA and the Auditor General, and adopted by the Florida Commissioner of Education. In 2014, the Legislature repealed s. 1008.35, Florida Statutes, which had authorized Best Financial Management Practices Reviews of school districts.
