Small School District Council Consortium

Established in 1983, the Small School District Council Consortium is a statewide consortium of small school districts organized to implement a coordinated legislative effort by and for small school districts.
The SSDCC’s primary focus is to promote small district issues with the Florida Legislature, Statewide elected-officials and state agency leadership. SSDCC members are school districts with student populations of 24,000 students or less, and regional consortia established in the statutes. The SSDCC currently has 39 members. The SSDCC is represented in Tallahassee by the Governmental Relations firm of Robert P. Jones & Associates. Chris Doolin is the lobbyist that represents the SSDCC in Tallahassee
