  • School districts and Florida College System institutions share responsibility for delivering workforce education programs using state, federal, and local funds. The state distributes these funds using different allocation methods for the two systems.
  • School districts and colleges make local decisions on how to divide workforce education responsibilities, which results in variations in service delivery throughout the state. While the two systems are authorized to offer similar programs, districts and colleges typically avoid duplicating local training programs.
