New Florida Standards Implementation
The Florida and the Islands Regional Comprehensive Center (FLICC) leverages previous work with standards implementation to comprehensively target new standards implementation across the state with a focus on rural areas. FLICC staff will partner with the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) to provide support for strategic planning, research, professional development and other services to improve instruction in schools statewide based on the new standards, their instructional shifts, and the other considerations necessary for successful transitions to college and careers. For more information, see the Florida Standards Implementation Plan.
FLICC leverages previous work with lesson study to target the lowest performing schools in the state. FLICC staff will partner with the FLDOE to provide professional development to improve instruction in schools that received a grade of "F" in 2012 (based on the Florida accountability system). In addition, FLICC will work with the FLDOE to implement a school improvement initiative based on University of Chicago’s 5Essentials Framework. For more information, see the Florida School Improvement Plan.
