As you are aware, Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 19-32 , directing FDOE Commissioner Richard Corcoran to comprehensively review the academic standards for Florida’s kindergarten through grade twelve students. In accordance with Rule 6A-1.09401 of the Florida Administrative Code, the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) is convening teacher expert groups for the purpose of reviewing the Florida standards.
FCTM Board members have been identified as teacher experts for leading the conversation for a specific domain and grade band. As a member of FCTM, your voice is critical in this process. In the coming weeks and months, you will receive multiple opportunities to share your thoughts, opinions, and recommendations. The current schedule is as follows: 9-12 Math in April, 6-8 Math in May, K-5 Math in June.
Please complete the survey below to indicate if you would like to be included in upcoming conversations.
All K-12 mathematics teachers are welcome to join FCTM and participate in this process with us. Membership information is available at https://fctm.net/fctmmemberships/ Please feel free to share this email forward with colleagues. This opportunity provides all FCTM members with a loud voice during this critical time. You will be providing direction and feedback to policy makers to benefit all Florida students.
For the general public (including non-FCTM members), feedback is welcome via the FLDOE feedback survey available at this website: http://www.fldoe.org/standardsreview
Thank you in advance for your willingness to participate in this critical process with the ultimate goal of improving Florida’s mathematics instructional programs!
