Health Education Rules Implementation Plans


Health Education Rules Implementation Plans

In November 2020, the State Board of Education updated the Required Instruction Rule (6A-1.094124) to include the three rules related to health education (mental and emotional health education; substance use and abuse; child trafficking prevention education). The new reporting procedure includes a requirement to use the online Florida Required Instruction Reporting Portal available at https://flrequiredinstruction.org.

By December 1 of each year, implementation plans for the three health education topics of 1) mental and emotional health, 2) substance use and abuse and 3) child trafficking prevention must be submitted using the portal for all required grade levels.

By July 1 of each year, annual reports must include all 14 comprehensive health education topics using the portal. Use of the portal does not affect the content districts are required to submit, only the method it is provided to the department. Implementation plans are required to be posted on school district webpages, but the requirement to submit to the department via email has been removed and replaced by the portal.
