Florida Department of Education Announces Second Stop on Standards Listening Tour

Tallahassee, Fla. – Tomorrow, Florida Department of Education leadership will conduct the second of three public forums where Floridians will have the opportunity to offer public input on the recently revised drafts of the Florida Standards.

In March 2021, the department opened Rule 6A-1.09401, Florida Administrative Code, for rule development to adopt or revise student academic standards for several content areas. These include Civics and Government (revised), Holocaust Education (new), Character Education (new), B.E.S.T. English Language Arts (ELA) standards (technical and minor revisions that will not affect implementation), and Access Points – Alternate Academic Achievement Standards for the B.E.S.T. ELA and Mathematics Standards for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities (new). Additionally, new standards for Substance Use and Abuse have been developed for consideration.

The revised drafts were crafted based on feedback the Department of Education received over the last several months from Florida teacher experts and the education community and can be viewed at?www.floridastandardsreview.org.
