School Concurrency Program
Growth Management is an essential part of the School District's interaction with local governments. Growth management legislation in 2002 resulted in the Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning between the School Board, Brevard County, and 14 municipalities in Brevard County. In 2005, new legislation required school capacity to be available for residential development, resulting in a new agreement call the Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning and School Concurrency, adopted in 2008. This agreement was updated in 2014 to provide for a consistent school concurrency program and framework for Brevard County's school concurrency program.
The School Board has created Policy 7130 and Administrative Procedures 7130.01 and 7130.02 to manage the School Concurrency process outlined in the 2014 Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning and School Concurrency.
The 81 School Concurrency Service Areas in Brevard County are the same as the school attendance boundaries (clink here for maps).
Student enrollment projections and projected capacity utilization for Brevard Public Schools (and Concurrency Service Areas) are calculated annually for the school concurrency program. Facilities Planning uses geospatial analysis of the local government development data, birth rate data, mobility rates, and matriculation rates to calculate student membership projections for the next 5 years. Further analysis takes into account any potential redistricting or grandfathered students from previous redistricting.
