Instructional Materials

On January 31, 2019, Governor DeSantis issued Executive Order 19-32, “Commitment to Eliminating Common Core, Ensuring High-Quality Academic Standards and Raising the Bar for Civic Literacy.” The Department of Education is in the process of beginning this work, which was announced to school districts via webinar on February 13, 2019. As stated on the webinar:

The standards review will include Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA), and will be conducted during 2019, with recommendations due to Governor DeSantis January 1, 2020.

There will be no changes to statewide assessments or the school grades calculation in 2018-19 and 2019-20 as a result of the executive order.

Opportunities for input will be available for educators and the public before the recommendations are submitted and again through the State Board of Education rulemaking process (state law requires standards exist in section 1003.41, Florida Statutes; the State Board approves standards through Rule 6A-1.09401, Florida Administrative Code).

The instructional materials adoption timeline has been revised. This year's mathematics instructional materials adoption has been postponed for two years. Revised Instructional Material Timeline
