Developmentally appropriate curriculum guidelines based on national and state standards have been developed by the district in the Comprehensive Academic Achievement Plan (CAAP) and the Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment (CIA) guidelines. The district will provide support and assistance to schools and teachers in the implementation of research-based, effective instruction to produce student achievement in the Sunshine State Standards including reading and math.

Progression through the elementary grades shall be determined by the student’s progress and achievement in the student outcomes approved by the superintendent. The student outcomes are based on performance standards approved by the State Board of Education. District standards approved by the superintendent for evaluating student performance are based on how well a student masters the Sunshine State Standards by evidence of FSA scores, alternative tests and other student work that demonstrate performance equivalent to FSA Level 2 or above.
