Social Studies Recommendations 021417
Please note the following Florida statute regarding instructional materials that pertains to parent input regarding adopted materials:
F.S. 1006.28 (1)(a)(3) Each district school board must establish a process by which the parent of a public school student may contest the district school board’s adoption of a specific instructional material. The parent must file a petition, on a form provided by the school board, within 30 calendar days after the adoption of the material by the school board. The school board must make the form available to the public and publish the form on the school district’s website. The form must be signed by the parent, include the required contact information, and state the objection to the instructional material. Within 30 days after the 30-day period has expired, the school board must conduct at least one open public hearing on all petitions timely received and provide the petitioner written notification of the date and time of the hearing at least 7 days before the hearing. All instructional materials contested must be made accessible online to the public at least 7 days before a public hearing. The school board’s decision after convening a hearing is final and not subject to further petition or review.
Current parents of St. Johns County School District students may file a petition for reconsideration using the form below. This form must be submitted, with petitioner’s signature, to SJCSD Media Services no later than Noon on March 17, 2017 for consideration. Any forms submitted after the deadline cannot be considered. Printed copies of the form are available in our office at 10 Hildreth Drive, St. Augustine, 32084.
