State Education Commissioner To Meet With Local Parents

Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran will be in Palm Beach County on Monday, Oct. 14 to hear from parents and community stakeholders about the state’s academic standards.

In January, Gov. Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 19-32 to improve Florida’s academic standards. This mandate directed Corcoran to comprehensively review the academic standards for Florida’s kindergarten through grade 12 students and provide recommended revisions by Jan. 1, 2020.

The Florida Department of Education has released the second draft of the revised standards for public input. The revised draft was crafted based on feedback received over the last several months from Florida teacher experts, national experts and the education community.

The meeting at John I. Leonard High School on Monday, Oct. 14 will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Media Center. Doors will open at 5 p.m.

If you are unable to attend, the public can submit feedback on each of the second draft standards individually at or via e-mail at
