Florida - Content Standards: Mathematics
Mathematics Florida Standards were approved by the Florida State Board of Education on February 18, 2014. In response to public concerns about these standards, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) in the Fall of 2013 opened three channels for the public to provide input to policy makers. First, three public meetings were held throughout the state at which attendees had the opportunity to communicate support for the standards as well as concerns about the standards. Second, a website was posted that presented information about the new standards, links to the proposed standards, transcripts of the public meetings, and other resources. A form was provided on the website for public input. Third, an email address was created for individuals to send their comments directly to the FDOE. Based on the results of the public comment, in January of 2014, the Department recommended that changes be made to the original Common Core State Standards adopted in July 2010. These standards are to be fully implemented in the 2014-15 school year and thereafter.
