Important Update 

On January 31, 2019, Governor DeSantis issued an Executive Order
 EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER 19-32 calling for the following items:
The standards review will include Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA), and will be conducted during 2019, with recommendations due to Governor DeSantis by January 1, 2020.
• There will be no changes to statewide assessments or the school grades calculation in 2018-19 and 2019-20 as a result of the executive order.
• Opportunities for input will be available for educators and the public before the recommendations are submitted and again through the State Board of Education rulemaking process (state law requires standards exist in section 1003.41, Florida Statutes; the State Board approves standards through Rule 6A-1.09401, Florida Administrative Code).
The instructional materials adoption timeline has been revised.
• Additional details and updates will be provided throughout the review process.
• A web page for the standards review is available at  Standards Review

Per district policy and Florida Statute, a parent of a student enrolled in an Escambia County public school or a resident of Escambia County may contest the district school board's adoption of a specific instructional material by filing a petition, using the "Motion to Contest the Adoption of an Instructional Material" form, within 30 calendar days after the adoption by the school board. The contest form can be found on the Media Services website (under Resources on this page). The full policy can be read in section 4.03 of the Rules and Procedures of the District School Board.

Note: During the 2018-19 school year, new K-5 Math and High School Financial Algebra and AP Calculus materials were adopted. These new materials are being implemented this school year (2019-20). The elementary, middle, and high school instructional materials lists have been updated to include these newly adopted Science materials.
