Management Plans

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 2013–2014 Standards Implementation Plan

School Turnaround

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 leverage Race to the Top funding in order to improve the School Improvement Plan submission process. Also, we will assist the FLDOE in reviewing their policies for supporting schools in need of improvement. For more information, see the Florida 2013–2014 School Turnaround Plan
