Instructional Materials Update

February 18, 2019


On January 31, 2019, Governor DeSantis issued Executive Order 19-32. On February 15, 2019, the Florida Department of Education (“FDOE”) issued a clarifying Memorandum with respect to the Executive Order. In its Memorandum, the FDOE revised the instructional materials timeline and stated the following: “The Mathematics adoption timeline is suspended… until the standards review is complete”.  In light of the Executive Order, and the Memorandum, the District will be suspending the Mathematics adoption passed by the Board on February 5, 2019. The existing Mathematics textbooks, previously adopted in 2012, will remain in place until further notice. Only resources needed to supplement existing textbooks will be purchased.

 

Accordingly, with the suspension of the Mathematics textbook adoption, the District hereby announces that the textbook adoption objections process is hereby cancelled along with any potential hearing that might have followed.
