Success is our Standard. John I Leonard High October 14, 2019

Commissioner Richard Corcoran will be in Palm Beach County, Monday, October 14, 2019 to hear from parents and community stakeholders about the state’s academic standards. 

In January, Governor DeSantis issued Executive Order 19-32 to ensure Florida has the best academic standards in the nation 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. This mandate directed Commissioner Corcoran to comprehensively review the academic standards for Florida’s kindergarten through grade twelve students and provide recommended revisions to the Governor by January 1, 2020.

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

The meeting at John I. Leonard High School will be held from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. in the Media Center. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m.

If you are unable to attend, the public can submit feedback on each of the second draft standards individually at or email at [email protected].

At, stakeholders have the ability to seamlessly review each of Florida’s proposed Mathematics and English Language Arts standards by grade level. For each subject and grade level, respondents are asked to state whether they would keep the proposed standard as is, revise the proposed standard, move the proposed standard, or eliminate the standard entirely. Respondents can also provide a rationale for their selection.
