Each school year the district adopts a new curriculum in one major subject area according to the state of Florida's instructional materials adoption cycle. The instructional material adoption process includes opportunities for the public to review materials, provide feedback, and submit requests for the reconsideration of adopted materials.

Resiliency Education

The State Board of Education requires instruction in child trafficking prevention and substance abuse education for students in grades K-12. Students in grades 6-12 are also required to receive five hours of resiliency instruction every year. The State of Florida has provided districts with required Resiliency Education topics that MUST be taught to students in grades 6 - 12. These topics in the area of Civic & Character Education and Life Skills Education build confidence and support mental health to develop and prepare you to become more resilient students.
