The Common Core Summer Institutes continue, this time in Ft. Lauderdale. Monday through Thursday teachers and administrators will learn about the Common Core requirements and how they will change curriculum and testing in Florida schools.
Thursday: The Florida Charter School Appeal Commission begins two days of hearings on charter school applications denied by local school boards. All six appeals on the agenda are in Palm Beach County.
