NEW FDOE Website For Families
The Florida Department of Education has launched a new web resource designed with parents in mind.
The new “Success Measures” website was crafted to help parents understand how changes to Florida's standards and assessments in the months and years to come will impact their children.
The most critical element of the site is the newly created “Success Measures Pathway Tool,” which is designed to provide parents and students with personalized reports detailing what is being taught and tested in our classrooms on a student-by-student basis.
