FLDOE – Rule Development Workshop & Public Comment on Standards Revisions
March 26, 2021 – The Florida Department of Education has opened Rule 6A-1.09401, Florida Administrative Code, for rule development to adopt or revise several content areas of student academic standards. 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. Drafts of the proposed revisions will be posted the week of April 5, 2021, at http://www.fldoe.org/standardsreview/.
There will also be an online public comment survey for Civics and Government, Holocaust Education, and Character Education standards. The department encourages all stakeholders to participate in the review process through the online surveys, which will be open when the draft standards are posted through April 23, 2021.
