Sunshine State Standards Review 2005
16
Sunshine State Standards
  • Current Standards were adopted in 1996
  • A Mid-term Review was conducted by FLDOE in 2001
  • 2005 Review is to determine what improvements can
    be made and to make necessary changes to ensure
    that SSS reflect up-to-date content and necessary
    skills

17
Improvements
  • Combining benchmarked standards from within or
    from different content areas
  • Increasing the rigor and relevance
  • Deleting standards that might be covered in other
    areas or are no longer essential
  • User-friendly to curriculum developers, teachers,
    students and parents

18
Improvements
  • FLDOE wants to ensure that student achievement
    difficulties are not created by a lack of rigor
    and relevance in the SSS

19
SSS
  • It is not expected that massive changes will be
    made
  • It is not expected that changes will impact our
    assessment system (FCAT)
  • It is expected that the number of benchmarks in
    all subjects will be reduced

20
Process
  • Analysis of SSS by several educational
    organizations, including FLDOE
  • Internet-based stakeholder input system related
    to specific benchmarks
  • Widespread stakeholder review of draft revisions
    will be conducted through focus groups and online
    input

21
Sunshine State Standards Review 2005
  • Stakeholder Input will be compiled in May 2005
  • Review of analyses by the Department of Education
    and development of a blueprint for the scope of
    the revisions by June 1, 2005
  • Drafting of revisions by August 1, 2005

22
Tentative Timeline
  • Stakeholder review of draft revisions by
    September 15, 2005
  • State Board of Education adoption in December
    2005

23
Tentative Timeline
  • District and school planning and professional
    development for implementation through August
    2006
  • Implementation in classrooms for the 2006-07
    school year

24
Stakeholder Input System
  • http//data.fldoe.org/sss/
  • No user ID or password is needed.

25
Stakeholder Input System
  • Stakeholder system is
  • Intended for feedback related to specific
    benchmark changes and issues
  • Not intended for user to browse SSS to look for
    changes that need to be made

26
Stakeholder Input System
  • Stakeholder should have specific benchmark
    numbers and corresponding suggestions at hand
    prior to logging on
