1 The Florida Standards: What Every Parent Should Know Dywayne B. Hinds Executive Director, Middle School Education Teaching and Learning Services Pinellas County Schools

2 Improving Instruction Today; Preparing for Tomorrow

3 What are the Florida Standards? What are the benefits of the Florida Standards? What is the design of both the FSA ELA & Math Assessments? Who is impacted by the standards change? When will students in Florida / Pinellas County take the FSA? Where can you find additional information? Intended Outcomes:

4 Why New Standards? Preparing Students to be College and Career Ready College Ready Ready for credit bearing course work upon entrance into college Career Ready Ready for a job that provides a salary to support a family of four with benefits and opportunity for promotion (not a poverty level job)

5 Why Florida Standards Matter Our goal is to ensure Florida’s students graduate high school ready for success in college, career and life. In order to prepare our students for success and make them competitive in the global workplace, we must provide them with a set of clear, consistent and strong academic standards. The Florida Standards will equip our students with the knowledge and skills they need to be ready for careers and college-level coursework. Having the best and highest academic standards for our students today will prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow.

6 Lack of Clarity “Write for a variety of purposes.” “Respond to variety of literary/informational texts.” “Competently use money.” Were these standards clear to teachers, students, and parents? Why did we need a change?

7 Inconsistencies Different districts set different learning targets Different classrooms learning different topics We must expect high achievement from all students in all classrooms Florida chose to include more standards than those outlined in Common Core Why did we need a change?

8 New Tests for New Standards With new, more rigorous standards in place to help Florida students succeed, the FCAT 2.0 no longer serves the purpose of measuring student progress and achievement. The Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) will measure student mastery of the newly adopted Florida Standards through a variety of item types.

9 What is Different about the Florida Standards Assessments? Assesses the higher expectations of the Florida Standards Provides a basis for comparing Florida performance to that of other states Emphasizes analytical thinking Provides a more authentic assessment through a variety of item formats Increased complexity of texts Focus on foundational math skills and application in novel, real-world situations Increased focus on justifying and presenting results and methods Critical reading and writing infused across all curricular areas Re-ordering of math content to reflect research-based path to college and career readiness

10 Preparation: The Florida Standards will prepare students for both college and the workplace and emphasizes higher-order skills instead of knowledge and recall. Benefits of Florida Standards

11 Competition: The Florida Standards have been influenced by internationally-benchmarked standards, ensuring that our students are prepared to be competitive in the global job market. Benefits of Florida Standards

12 Clarity: The standards are focused, coherent, and clear. Everyone knows what is expected of our students. Benefits of Florida Standards

13 Collaboration: Florida Standards will be a foundation for teachers across districts to work together from the same blueprints. This will facilitate the sharing of best practices. Benefits of Florida Standards
