K-20 Accountability Council to meet Monday in Tallahassee

The K-20 Accountability Advisory Council will meet Monday, April 8, at 10 a.m. in Suite 1721-25 of the Turlington Building, 325 W. Gaines St., Tallahassee.

The meeting will provide an overview of current accountability in Florida’s postsecondary sectors to provide the council a basis for developing recommendations for a K-20 education system. Presentations will address current accountability measures and policies for workforce/vocational programs, community colleges and state universities.

Background information will also be provided to summarize Florida’s student demographics in relation to other states, high school graduates, post-high-school follow up into higher education and the workforce, and postsecondary enrollment and output.

Council members will be divided into workgroups to consider and deliberate K-20 performance measures for each of four statutory goals and accountability reporting levels.

The council was appointed by Education Secretary Jim Horne to provide recommendations on accountability measures and components for assessing how well Florida’s K-20 education system is performing.

The council is scheduled to present recommendations to the Florida Board of Education by June 30.
