Decisions regarding these documents remain decisions of local school boards Opportunity for public comment was provided during October Stakeholders were permitted to comment on a standard-by-standard basis via a website or by . The 19,000+ comments will be reviewed and considered when finalizing the standards. The goal is to reaffirm that all the standards are strong and adequately reflect what we deem important for students to know in Florida.
Assessment Update Florida as withdrawn as the fiscal agent for PARCC. A competitive solicitation will be issued to select Florida’s next state assessment. An assessment of standards utilized in classrooms will be implemented in the school year.

Timeline for FAIR-CC Field Testing this school year – data collection for AP1 in process; data collection for AP2 will occur in January and February 2014; data collection for AP3 in April and May Goal is for the assessment to be in place for the school year.
K-5 Literacy Block Aligned to new Florida Standards Range of Time: minutes daily English Language Arts: – Includes Reading instruction >90 minutes English Language Arts minutes (210) Reading >90 minutes Range of identified time determined by student assessment data results Proportion of time students engage in reading instruction versus integrated, high- skill instruction depends upon student assessment results.
INTEGRATION OF SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES CONTENT INTO THE LITERACY BLOCK StandardsScience/Social Studies Text and Performance Tasks Reading Informational TextK Standard 1 Read closely; cite specific textual evidence to support conclusions After listening to Fire! Fire!, students answer questions about firefighters’ response to fires using key text details. Students read A Medieval Feast, asking and answering questions using key text information. Students explicitly quote “Seeing Eye to Eye” to explain statements and inferred ideas about sight and light. Standard 2 Determine central ideas or themes; analyze their development; summarize Students read poem, “Garden Helpers,” in National Geographic Young Explorers, summarizing main idea and retelling key text details. Students explain how Lincoln had “many faces” in Lincoln: A Photobiography is supported by key details in text. Students determine main idea of “Telescopes” and explain how key details support author’s distinctions between different types of telescopes. Standard 3 Analyze how/why individuals, events, ideas develop and interact over course of a text. Students describe connection between drag and flying in How People Learned to Fly. Students read author’s retelling of a series of historical events in Story of Ruby Bridges and use knowledge of cause/effect to describe desegregation events. Students explain relationship between time and clocks using specific information from the text, About Time.

Students use text features (table of contents, headings) to identify and locate relevant information in Ah, Music!. Students identify overall organizational pattern of ideas/ concepts/information in Horses, comparing it to structure used in Hurricanes.

Reading Endorsement – Add-on Program Renewal Last year most districts submitted a matrix which delineated the course assignments that met the indicators in the 2011 Reading Endorsement. This was separate of the renewal process. Add-on programs are scheduled for renewal in In early 2014 you will receive information regarding this process. It will not be cumbersome and will be completed by summer of 2014.
Reading Endorsement – New Courses New Reading Endorsement courses aligned to the 2011 Reading Endorsement should be ready for dissemination by spring These courses will provide districts with content they can use to facilitate in-house Reading Endorsement courses.
Reading Endorsement/ESOL Endorsement Right now if a teacher has one endorsement and wishes to acquire the other, he/she must complete the other in its entirety. While options have been explored to create a crosswalk, we are currently on hold. Please contact our office to express your thoughts about this.
Monitoring K-12 Reading Plans legislation requires: – The monitoring of K-12 Plan implementation – An implementation report due to the legislature in February. – A report of district expenditures toward their implementation; report will be provided by finance officer.

District K-12 Comprehensive Reading Plan Revision We’ll begin looking at how to revise the K-12 Plan to align with new standards in November. Please contact our office with any thoughts regarding what changes you might like to see, what you think would particularly need to be included, or what needs to be removed from the plan.
