SB 4 – Technical Assistance 41. What is the authorizing legislation for the EOC assessment results waiver? Senate Bill 4 amended s. 1003. 428(8)(b)2, F. S. , and states: “A student with a disability, as defined in s. 1007. 02(2), F. S. for whom the IEP committee determines that an end of-course assessment cannot accurately measure the student’s abilities, taking into consideration allowable accommodations, shall have the end-of-course assessment results waived for the purpose of determining the student’s course grade and credit as required in paragraph (4) (a). ”

What success looks like. Graduating students who are prepared for success in the 21 st century as evidenced by securing a job that includes a salary that can support living expenses and is in a career of choice.
• Clear and compelling evidence shows that the level of the courses students take in high school is one of the best predictors of their success in college and the workplace. • This is particularly true in mathematics: Data show a strong correlation between taking higher-level mathematics courses in high school and achieving success in college and employment in high-growth, highperformance jobs. • Rigorous course-taking matters for all students, but it is particularly important for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Race to the Top – Phase 2 Florida’s Application has been Awarded! • $770 Million for Public Education over the next 4 years
Race to the Top Goals 1. Double the percentage of incoming high school freshmen who ultimately graduate from high school, go on to college, and achieve at least a year’s worth of college credit; 2. Reduce the achievement gap by half in 2015; and 3. Increase the percentage of students scoring at or above proficient on NAEP by 2015, to or beyond the performance levels of the highestperforming states.
Our RTTT Goals Double the Percent Earning College Credit
Our RTTT Goals 4 th Grade Reading
Our RTTT Goals 8 th Grade Mathematics
Florida’s Race to the Top!
Common Core State Standards • CCSS for Mathematics and Language Arts were adopted by the State Board in July 2010 • Implementation of these new standards will occur over time • FCAT 2. 0 and End-of-Course Assessments based on Next Generation Sunshine State Standards through 2013 -14
Common Core State Standards • The final Common Core State Standards can be found at www. corestandards. org. – 1) ELA Standards Link: http: //www. corestandards. org/thestandards/english-language-arts-standards – 2) Math Standards Link: http: //www. corestandards. org/thestandards/mathematics – 3) Validation Committee Report: http: //www. corestandards. org/assets/Common. Core. Report_6. 10. pdf – 4) Summary of Public Feedback on the Standards: Nearly 10, 000 individual online surveys were completed and submitted. Ninety-two percent of the respondents identified themselves as representing the opinions of an individual rather than a group or organization.
