Jacksonville Public Education Toolkit Available

On October 14, 2015 the Jacksonville Public Education Fund presented an overview of the transition to the new Florida Standards.

The document below is intended to help explain the shifts that our schools are experiencing and provide easy-to-use information that you can distribute to the people you know and serve, from parents, students and teachers to clients, friends, neighbors and coworkers. It includes an overview of the shifts that will help you as you talk with people in your network, as well as adaptable and re-usable electronic and print collateral that you can share.

All content provided in the PDF is in the public domain. You are free to modify and adapt all of these materials however works best for you and your organization.

The toolkit is also live online at jaxpef.org/toolkit.

If you would like JPEF to present their findings, or provide training on their online tool, please contact Ms. Connor using one of the contacts below.

JPEF sees this toolkit as a living, breathing toolkit that will continue to be updated and added to over time.
