The Hernando County Delegation
Sen. Wilton Simpson
Rep. Blaise Ingoglia
Rep. Ralph E. Massullo, MD
Hernando County School District
LEGISLATIVE PLATFORM & PRIORITIES
POLICY REQUEST - Sparsity
Revise the statutory language regarding eligibility for sparsity funds to become a permanent change in law rather than an adjustment to the appropriations each year.
FUNDING REQUEST – Transportation
Fully fund all costs for student transportation, including funds necessary to address maintenance and replacement costs as well as the cost of transporting students to required, instructional camps during the summer.
Currently, Hernando School District receives approximately 50% of the necessary $8 million to transport eligible students.
Reduce eligibility for school transportation for elementary students to 1 mile from their zoned school.
