  510  shows a credit in high school reading or English Language Arts
  511  II or III, in order to earn a standard high school diploma, the
  512  student must take and pass the statewide, standardized grade 10
  513  Reading assessment or, when implemented, the grade 10 ELA
  514  assessment, or earn a concordant score. If a transfer student’s
  515  transcript shows a final course grade and course credit in
  516  Algebra I, Geometry, Biology I, or United States History, the
  517  transferring course final grade and credit shall be honored
  518  without the student taking the requisite statewide, standardized
  519  EOC assessment and without the assessment results constituting
  520  30 percent of the student’s final course grade.

 1249  who enrolled for the first time in public postsecondary
 1250  education in this state during the previous summer, fall, or
 1251  spring term of the previous academic year, indicating the number
 1252  of students whose scores on the common placement test indicated
 1253  the need for developmental education under s. 1008.30 or for
 1254  applied academics for adult education under s. 1004.91.
 1255         Section 32. Subsection (11) of section 1009.21, Florida

 1263  universities.
 1264         (11) Once a student has been classified as a resident for
 1265  tuition purposes, an institution of higher education to which
 1266  the student transfers is not required to reevaluate the
 1267  classification unless inconsistent information suggests that an
 1268  erroneous classification was made or the student’s situation has
 1269  changed. However, the student must have attended the institution
 1270  making the initial classification within the prior 12 months,
 1271  and the residency classification must be noted on the student’s

 1282  programs.—
 1283         (3)Each school district and Florida College System
 1284  institution receiving state appropriations for workforce
 1285  education programs must maintain adequate and accurate records,
 1286  including a system to record school district workforce education

 1288  postsecondary workforce education expenditures and secondary
 1289  workforce education expenditures. These records must be
 1290  submitted to the Department of Education in accordance with
 1291  rules of the State Board of Education.
 1292         (6)(5) State funding and student fees for workforce
 1293  education instruction shall be established as follows:
 1294         (b) For all other workforce education programs, state
 1295  funding shall be calculated based on a weighted enrollment and
 1296  program cost minus fee revenues generated to offset program
 1297  operational costs, including any supplemental cost factors
 1298  recommended by the District Workforce Education Funding Steering
 1299  Committee equal 75 percent of the average cost of instruction
 1300  with the remaining 25 percent made up from student fees. Fees
 1301  for courses within a program shall not vary according to the
 1302  cost of the individual program, but instead shall be as provided
 1303  in s. 1009.22 based on a uniform fee calculated and set at the
 1304  state level, as adopted by the State Board of Education, unless
 1305  otherwise specified in the General Appropriations Act.
 1306         Section 34. Section 1011.802, Florida Statutes, is created
 1307  to read:
 1308         1011.802FLAG program.—
 1309         (1)Subject to appropriations provided in the General
 1310  Appropriations Act, the FLAG (Florida Apprenticeship Grant)
 1311  program is created to provide grants to high schools, career
 1312  centers, charter technical career centers, Florida College
 1313  System institutions, and other entities authorized to sponsor an
 1314  apprenticeship or preapprenticeship program, as defined in s.
 1315  446.021, on a competitive basis to establish new apprenticeship
 1316  or preapprenticeship programs and expand existing apprenticeship
 1317  or preapprenticeship programs. The Department of Education shall
 1318  administer the grant program.
 1319         (2)Applications must contain projected enrollment and
 1320  projected costs for the new or expanded apprenticeship program.
 1321         (3)The department shall give priority to apprenticeship
 1322  programs with demonstrated regional demand. Grant funds may be
 1323  used for instructional equipment, supplies, personnel, student
 1324  services, and other expenses associated with the creation or
 1325  expansion of an apprenticeship program. Grant funds may not be
 1326  used for recurring instructional costs or for indirect costs.
 1327  Grant recipients must submit quarterly reports in a format
 1328  prescribed by the department.
 1329         (4)The State Board of Education may adopt rules to
 1330  administer this section.
 1331         Section 35. Subsections (1) through (4) of section 1012.57,
 1332  Florida Statutes, are amended, and subsection (6) is added to
 1333  that section, to read:
 1334         1012.57 Certification of adjunct educators.—
 1335         (1) Notwithstanding the provisions of ss. 1012.32, 1012.55,
 1336  and 1012.56, or any other provision of law or rule to the
 1337  contrary, district school boards shall adopt rules to allow for
 1338  the issuance of an adjunct teaching certificate to any applicant
 1339  who fulfills the requirements of s. 1012.56(2)(a)-(f) and (10)
 1340  and who has expertise in the subject area to be taught. An
 1341  applicant shall be considered to have expertise in the subject
 1342  area to be taught if the applicant demonstrates sufficient
 1343  subject area mastery through passage of a subject area test. The
 1344  adjunct teaching certificate shall be used for part-time
 1345  teaching positions.
 1346         (2) The Legislature intends that this section allow school
 1347  districts to tap the wealth of talent and expertise represented
 1348  in Florida’s citizens who may wish to teach part-time in a
 1349  Florida public school by permitting school districts to issue
 1350  adjunct certificates to qualified applicants.
 1351         (3) Adjunct certificateholders should be used primarily as
 1352  a strategy to enhance the diversity of course offerings offered
 1353  to all students. School districts may use the expertise of
 1354  individuals in the state who wish to provide online instruction
 1355  to students by issuing adjunct certificates to qualified
 1356  applicants.
 1357         (4) Each adjunct teaching certificate is valid through the
 1358  term of the annual contract between the educator and the school
 1359  district. An additional annual certification and an additional
 1360  annual contract may be awarded by the district at the district’s
 1361  discretion but only if the applicant is rated effective or
 1362  highly effective under s. 1012.34 during each year of teaching
 1363  under adjunct teaching certification. A school district may
 1364  issue an adjunct teaching certificate for a part-time or full
 1365  time teaching position; however, an adjunct teaching certificate
 1366  issued for a full-time teaching position is valid for no more
 1367  than 3 years and is nonrenewable.
 1368         (6)Each school district shall:
 1369         (a)Post requirements on its website for the issuance of an
 1370  adjunct teaching certificate, which must specify the subject
 1371  area test through which an applicant demonstrates subject area
 1372  mastery.
 1373         (b)Annually report to the department the number of adjunct
 1374  teaching certificates issued for part-time teaching positions
 1375  and full-time teaching positions pursuant to this section.
 1376         Section 36. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this
 1377  act and except for this section, which shall take effect upon
 1378  this act becoming a law, this act shall take effect July 1,
 1379  2019.
