Video of Commissioner Robinson’s back-to-school message, including information about the new motto.
A motto is a good way to convey an ethos of any organization. As Florida’s new Commissioner of Education, I am implementing a new motto in support of the strategic plan approved by the State Board of Education and to guide the spirit of our work at the Department:
Supporting Colleges, Careers, Commerce & Creativity
Everything we do as a FLDOE team must support the essential building blocks of our state and national economy. This means:
- Preparing high school graduates for the rigor of a quality postsecondary education.
- Equipping young people and adults with employable skills in high-wage earning careers.
- Creating public-private partnerships to encourage economic development and strengthen local and statewide commerce.
- Thinking creatively about how best to deliver and manage our seamless system of education.
In closing, I am honored to be part of the Florida Department of Education. These are exciting times for our state, and I want you to know that your Department of Education is Supporting Colleges, Careers, Commerce & Creativity.
