Florida uses a school headcount during one designated week of Fall (and Spring) classes to determine funding. Like other districts, the Alachua County School District works to encourage attendance during this FTE week (“full-time equivalent” week) to obtain its fair share of funding. Last October the district lost about $200,000 in funding because about 30 students missed the entire week of the October FTE count.
