EdStats and this Year’s School Accountability Report

Posted by on Aug 20, 2019 in General Information | Comments Off on EdStats and this Year’s School Accountability Report

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that school districts provide parents with an annual state, district, and school status reports to include but not limited to the following: student achievement, accountability and subgroup data.

Florida’s EDStats tool provides a robust data reporting portal that FDOE will use to provide information to parents and the public about the performance of subgroups in the school grades system and for many other performance metrics (https://edstats.fldoe.org).  In addition, the FDOE uses data to produce readily accessible school and district report cards, providing transparent information to all stakeholders. The district report card specifically reports on progress toward transitioning students from one level (elementary, middle, high) to the next and also reports graduation data. (https://edudata.fldoe.org/index.html).

Florida’s Annual Economic Security Report for Students in Grades 6-12

Posted by on Aug 20, 2019 in General Information | Comments Off on Florida’s Annual Economic Security Report for Students in Grades 6-12

The Department of Economic Opportunity has released their most recent Economic Security Report. This report is a great tool that is specific to the educational and economic environment of Florida and can be used to start informed conversations about the many opportunities to earn a number of recognized credentials at the middle school, high school and post-secondary levels. Encouraging families to start these conversations early is essential to the decision making around a student’s college and career choices and ultimately their outcomes. Further, it is a statutory requirement to provide a summary of the Department of Economic Opportunity’s annual Economic Security Report to parents of students in grades 6-12. The most recent (2018) report and summary is now posted on the Florida Department of Education website at http://www.fldoe.org/policy/edu-laws-legislation/governmental-relations/.

Florida’s Economic Security Report is just one of the many college and career planning tools available to students and their families. Other resources include, but are not limited to, www.floridashines.orgwww.careeronestop.org, and the resources found at http://www.fldoe.org/academics/college-career-planning/.
