Legislative & Rule Changes

 

2011 Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards--Birth to Kindergarten & the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards for Four-Year-Olds (2011)

 

Beginning in Spring 2017, the Office of Early Learning has worked with national and state experts to begin revising the 2011 Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards--Birth to Kindergarten and the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards for Four-Year-Olds (2011).These standards and benchmarks reflect the knowledge and skills that a child on a developmental trajectory (progression) should know and be able to do at the end of the age-related timeframe.

 

There will be opportunities for public input regarding the content of the draft revised standards through rule development workshops for the following rules:

  • Rule 6M-4.700, F.A.C. Child Performance Standards (Birth to Kindergarten)
  • Rule 6M-8.602, F.A.C. Performance Standards for Children Participating in VPK (4 Years Old to Kindergarten)
