In 2002, Sections 163.3174, 163.31777 and 1013.33 of the
Florida Statutes were created, requiring each county and
non-exempt municipality within that county to enter into an Interlocal Agreement with the District School Board to
jointly establish specific ways in which the plans and
processes of the District School Board and the Local
Governments are to be coordinated. The Brevard County Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning and
School Concurrency, in accordance with Florida Statutes
163.3174 - Local Planning Agency (LPA), states that "the
County and Cities will include a nonvoting representative
appointed by the School Board on the local planning
agencies...The Cities and County may at their discretion
grant voting status to the appointed School Board member".

vital to School District planning. The Planning
staff also assists the representatives with agenda items when school related

"required" to report to the staff or School Board, but, group
meetings are held on a regular
basis to discuss common issues. Occasionally, one-on- one sessions are held in
order to address specific issues.
A handbook has been developed to provide data and
“guidelines” for the LPA Representatives.
