BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Palm Beach County School District) — The School Board of Palm Beach County has prevailed on an appeal brought by two charter schools seeking to require the Board to share a portion of the proceeds of the 2018 1-mill operating referendum.
Judge Glenn Kelley, of the 15th Judicial Circuit of Palm Beach County, entered summary judgment in favor of the School Board in August 2019. That ruling was upheld Wednesday by the Fourth District Court of Appeal (DCA) by a split decision.
The Fourth DCA agreed with the School Board that a charter school is not legally entitled to a share of the ad valorem taxes pursuant to the voter-approved 2018 Referendum.
The decision is not final, however, because the charter schools have a brief period of time to ask the Fourth DCA to reconsider their ruling.
