Many are following the SB1360 testing flexibility (aka Sunshine Solution) which has been a multi-county collaborative effort with Seminole County leading the way. President Gaetz and the Ed. Appropriations staff have done spectacular work crafting a Bill that makes the flexibility:
- Optional (district decides)
- Cost / Budget Neutral
- High Quality
- Paper option
- Market Driven (Colleges and Industry demand driving the tests)
- Career and Technical Friendly
Video of our August 17 meeting can be found here: https://youtu.be/2c3YbmTLS6E
An article mentioning FCSBM (and our stance on this bill) is available here.
It's nice of FSBA to recognize the good work we began months ago, but a bit embarrassing that they would step in front of this parade when our members (especially in Seminole and Collier County) have done so much work.
