Session 2018

The Foundation for Florida's Future works with parents, teachers and education advocates across the Sunshine State to improve the quality of education for every student.

During Florida’s 2018 Legislative Session, we will be working closely with Florida leaders to implement student-centered policies in several areas, including college and career readiness, educational opportunity and early literacy.

Foundation for Florida’s Future – 2018 Legislative Priorities:

Personalized Learning

Providing flexibility to school districts participating in Florida’s mastery-based education pilot program and allowing more districts to participate.

VPK/Early Literacy

Allowing parents to get an additional year of VPK at no cost if their child needs additional time and support to arrive ready for Kindergarten.

College & Career Pathways

Helping more students, especially those living in urban communities, earn college credit through expanding Florida’s partnership with The College Board to increase AP course participation and passage

Expanding computer science education so that students have access to courses that prepare them for success in college and career, and providing incentives for teachers.

Educational Opportunities

Protecting students who have been bullied or harassed by giving them the opportunity to move to a safer public or private school through the Hope Scholarship program.

Ensuring the more than 1,300 Florida students with special needs currently waiting to participate in the Gardiner Scholarship Program have access to the benefits of a customized education.
