Florida State Standards Listening Tour

  • Date: Monday, Oct 21, 2019
  • Time: 5:30PM to 6:30PM
  • Where: Liberty Pines Academy, St. Johns County

Earlier this year, Governor DeSantis issued an executive order calling for a revision of the Florida State Standards and elimination of the Common Core. Since then, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) has worked with educators and other experts to draft proposed changes to the standards, while taking public comment. Now, FDOE is conducting a listening tour around the state for additional community input before finalizing the K-12 standards and submitting a report to the State Board of Education.

The listening tour will make a stop next Monday, October 21 at Liberty Pines Academy in St. Johns County. This is your opportunity to share your perspective on the existing standards as well as thoughts on any proposed changes.
