Brevard Public Schools Put Adoption of New Math and ELA Programs on Hold in Response to Governor’s Executive Order

On January 31, Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 19-32, outlining a path for Florida to improve its education system by eliminating Common Core and paving the way for Florida students to receive a world-class education to prepare them for jobs of the future.

In accordance with Executive Order 19-32 and with guidance from the state Department of Education, Brevard Public Schools is putting plans for its Math (K-12) instructional materials adoption on hold until 2021-2022, with implementation now planned for 2022-2027. Accordingly, the current petition window for the math textbook adoption will cease immediately. In addition, the upcoming English Language Arts (ELA) program adoption has also been delayed until 2020-2021, with implementation 2021-2026.

Executive Order 19-32 directs Florida Department of Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran to comprehensively review the academic standards for Florida’s K-12 students and provide recommended revisions to Governor DeSantis.

· A review of standards will be conducted during 2019, with recommendations due to Governor DeSantis January 1, 2020

· No changes to statewide assessments or school grades calculation in 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 related the executive order

· Extensive public input opportunities will be available before the recommendations are submitted and again through State Board of Education rulemaking process (state law requires standards exist; the State Board approves the standards)
