There doesn't seem to be anything in this bill that changes the fundamental way private schools for home educators (umbrella schools) operate in Florida. But there are some changes to programs that home educators use that may be of interest to Florida Unschoolers families.

See the summary above and the following pages for more information:

Florida Gardiner Scholarship
FLVS

While it was not part of the education bill, there was a possible change in Bright Futures funding and some students may be eligible for more funding in the 2017-2018 academic year.
