The Florida Department of Education unveiled a new website that will help Florida families make critical education decisions by enabling them to access school and district-level data and will better inform families about the state's college and career ready standards and the quality of learning taking place in their students' classrooms.
FDLRS PAEC Parent Services assists districts in development of partnerships between families and professionals which allow for shared responsibility for improving the education of children and youth who are exceptional and/or have special or unique needs. FDLRS/PAEC supports parents through the following project priorities:
Collaborates with schools and districts in the development of family friendly schools
Supports development of parenting skills and an understanding of disabilities, abilities, educational rights, due process procedures, education, and developmental and transitional needs.
In an ongoing effort to reach as many parents as possible, FDLRS PAEC Parent Services develops and disseminates to the nine FDLRS PAEC districts the “Extra Special Edition” Parent Newsletter. These newsletters bring parents information to keep them updated on events in their area, federal/state updates and strategies to help their children. The “Extra Special Edition” Parent Newsletters are developed quarterly and customized per district.
