State Colleges Look For Funding Boost - CBS Miami

Florida state colleges are looking for additional money in the next state budget, with college presidents saying the funding would help more students graduate on time and would improve counseling services at the 28 schools. The request, which was presented Wednesday to the state Board of Education in Orlando, includes $40 million in performance-based funding and $60 million that would be distributed through a funding formula for the colleges. Timothy Beard, president of Pasco-Hernando State College in New Port Richey, said the Council of Presidents, which represents the academic leaders at each of the state colleges, supports a Department of Education budget request for the system. In addition, the council is requesting $100 million in “new” funding, according to an outline provided to the Board of Education.
