Florida Prepaid College Board
19B-12.001: Special Petition
19B-12.002: Point of Entry
19B-12.003: Financial Hardship
The Florida Prepaid College Board (Board), State Board of Administration, hereby gives notice:
on October 29, 2012, the Board issued an order. The Final Order was in response to a Petition for Variance and/or Waiver from Mr. Theodore S. Forman, Esq., filed August 10, 2012, and advertised in Vol. 38, No. 35, of the Florida Administrative Register on August 31, 2012. No comments were received in response to the petition. The Final Order on the Petition for Variance and/or Waiver denies the Petitioner a variance and/or waiver of Rule 19B-12, Florida Administrative Code, which provides for greivance petitions, i.e., special petition, point of entry, and hardships, which the Board does not have authority to grant. Furthermore, the Petitioner did not demonstrate a hardship nor an abridgement of the principles of fairness to support its petition seeking a variance and/or waiver from purchasing the tuition differential fee plan in 2012 at the 2012 rates and seeking permission instead to purchase the tuition differential fee plan at 2007 rates.
A copy of the Order or additional information may be obtained by contacting:
José Lorenzo, Chief Legal Counsel, 1801 Hermitage Blvd., Suite 210, Tallahassee, Florida 32308.
