College and Career Readiness with the New Florida Standards in Mind:
Where to Begin?

Open to all Florida Building Leadership Teams at No Cost!
  • What do we know about the new Florida Standards and the cognitive demand required for students to be successful?
  • How will students be assessed to demonstrate their mastery of the new standards? What are the implications for instructional practices and the design of student experiences?
  • How do you set your teachers and ultimately your students up for success? What are two to three “big ticket” priorities to focus on through your PLCs and colleague circles and what are some possible high impact tools to get you started?
