The eleven school districts that form the Greater Florida Consortium of School Boards are: Indian River, St. Lucie, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota and Pinellas Counties. The Consortium’s goal is to increase the average funding per student to ensure that Florida is in the top half of the states and can provide a world-class education to enable its students to compete and excel in the global marketplace.
“The Greater Florida Consortium of School Boards has the potential to help shape the future of Florida’s public education system. I am deeply honored to serve as its President as we explore new ways of collaborating to meet the needs of the students we serve. Together we are better.” said Brill.
