Viera, FL -- In November, Brevard County voters showed their support for Brevard Public Schools by approving a millage increase with the revenue being used to increase employee compensation, student programs, and technology.
During May 9th's Work Session meeting, the School Board heard an update on the district’s timeline to disperse the revenue to employees among other items.
BPS employees will see the first millage payment in their August 31st paychecks.
The millage will last for four years unless extended by voters, with 80% set aside for employee compensation, 16% set aside for student programs, and 4% set aside for technology.

The Brevard Schools Foundation
and the School Board are looking for applicants for the Independent Citizen Committee for Millage Oversight (ICCMO).
The purpose of the ICCMO is to provide oversight and ensure proper fiscal stewardship of the funds received from the ad valorem millage approved by Brevard County voters on November 8, 2022.
Applications are being accepted through June 9, 2023.
Millage supplement payments will begin for all employees on the August 31, 2023 paycheck and will continue for a total of 20 pay periods over the 2023-2024 school year. At this time, the exact amount an employee may receive cannot be determined until information from the county tax records has been received. The information on the BPS website provides an estimate of an employee’s potential earnings based on current years of service and estimated tax revenue. Please note that the millage amount will be recalculated each school year, over the next four years, based on tax revenue and employee years of service and will be variable.
