1. Why do the Superintendent and Board Chair have to annually certify the accuracy of the district’s inventory of facilities (FISH)?
    State Requirements for Educational Facilities (SREF) 6.1(7)(c) requires that, “Prior to April 1 of each year, each district shall review the Florida Inventory of School Houses (FISH) and shall certify to the Office that the inventory is current and accurate. Use form OEF FISH – Certification of Facilities Data.” Certification is required to ensure that all data used for analyses of need, assessments of meeting class size reduction standards, reporting requirements to the legislature and other governing bodies, and reports provided to the public are made using accurate and current facilities information.
