Report
The
Florida
Standards:
What Every
Parent Should
Know

Improving Instruction Today;
Preparing for Tomorrow
Intended Outcomes:
• 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?
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)
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.
Why did we need a change?
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?
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
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.
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
Benefits of Florida Standards
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
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
Clarity:
The standards are focused, coherent, and
clear. Everyone knows what is expected of
our students.
Benefits of Florida Standards
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.
