Welcome to the Florida Department of Education’s new blog, Florida Common Ground. We hope that this blog will be a helpful resource for you, providing tips to help you with your child’s education, education news updates, event notices and much more. We also hope this blog will serve as yet another resource to contact us here at the Department. We look forward to your questions and suggestions as we work to fuel constructive conversations around the continued progress of education reform in our state and the resulting achievement of our students.
As many parents, teachers and education leaders around the state are aware, our state’s educational landscape can be difficult to navigate at times. In an effort to help parents better understand the educational options available for their children, the Department of Education is hosting its first-ever School Choice Expo Jan. 22 in Tampa. If you’ve ever wanted to know more about dual enrollment or advanced placement courses, McKay Scholarships, virtual education or charter schools, this Expo will be extremely beneficial for you. And if you can’t join us Saturday in Tampa you can still check out a live online feed of the Expo at. For more info about the event, visit www.floridaschoolchoiceexpo.com.
Again, thanks for checking out our new blog. See you next time!
