Social Media Disclaimer


The Florida Department of Education is proud to be reaching out to Floridians and citizens throughout the United States via social media outlets, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, blogs and forums. Our hope is that these additional platforms will serve as another point-of-access to the Department. The Department offers these social media accounts as resources for teachers, students, parents and all Floridians. Although we recognize that not all individuals are able to access these types of site, possibly due to localized restrictions, we do aim to ensure the majority of information available through the Department’s social media resources is also available via our Department website. In addition, all Department social media sites are available to all users 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
