Florida (Finally) Submits Revised Plan

April 23, 2018

According to Jeffrey Solochek in the Tampa Bay Times, the Florida Department of Education has submitted its revised ESSA plan, “months after the U.S. Education department said multiple revisions were needed.” In the updated version, state education officials said they “had filed for a waiver of certain testing rules for middle school students in science and math, so they do not have to take more than one state exam in the same year,” as well as “set a definition for languages other than English that are used to a significant extent in schools.”
