BRADENTON, Fla. — Florida school districts face rising negative fiscal and credit pressures stemming from the weak economy, funding uncertainties, and property tax reform, Moody's Investors Service said in a special report last week.

So far most districts have coped with revenue uncertainties and no negative rating or outlook changes have been made by Moody's on Florida school districts' general obligation, issuer, or certificates of participation ratings in over a year. The exception is a negative outlook assigned in October 2008 to the Miami-Dade County School Board due to reduced operating flexibility.
