CAPE Innovation Courses


Sections 1003.4203 and 1008.44, F.S., were amended to establish a new type of course which combines academic and career content with performance expectations that will result in college credit and industry certification attainment. These courses are called CAPE Innovation Courses. According to the statutory framework, each approved CAPE Innovation Course must have at least two third-party assessments, one of which must be associated with an industry certification on the CAPE Industry Certification Funding List. These courses are eligible for additional full-time equivalency (FTE) membership in the Florida Education Finance Program (FEFP), as specified in s. 1011.62(1)(o)1.c., for student completion of the required performance outcomes.
