School Cafeteria Requirements for Charter Schools

Summary: Senate Bill 1908 amended the 2008 Florida School Laws: Section 1013.12, Florida Statutes, subsection (2) Paragraph (b) to read as follows:

  • 1013.12 Casualty, safety, sanitation, and fire safety standards and inspection of property.
  • (2) PERIODIC INSPECTION OF PROPERTY BY DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARDS.
  • (b) Each school cafeteria must post in a visible location and on the school website the school's semiannual sanitation certificate and a copy of its most recent sanitation inspection report.

As this is considered a health and safety issue, charter schools are not exempt from this statute. Please view the link below for the Technical Assistance Note issued by the Department of Education Food and Nutrition Office.
