The Florida Partnership & The Head and the Heart Come Together:








Access and Equity
in my school and classroom What is the Florida Partnership? For more information about the Florida Partnership:
http://www.collegeboard.org/floridapartnership/index.html Under the leadership of Governor Jeb Bush, the state of Florida and the College Board entered into an agreement in 1999. Focused on increasing academic rigor in Florida's public schools in order to prepare students (with a particular emphasis on minority and underrepresented students) for postsecondary success. The Florida Partnership was signed into law in 2004 as Florida Statute 1007.35 Florida Partnership for Minority and Underrepresented Student Achievement. For the Head:
The Data In 1999, there were a total of 49,313 SAT test takers in Florida's public schools. In 2010, the number of SAT test takers increased to 78,985 - an increase of 60.2% The Head The Heart The Gut For the Heart:

Washington The Florida Partnership & Dr. David Jeselnik
Coordinator of Accountability, Assessment, and Secondary Programs Challenged by the physical size of the county and the diversity of the schools/citizens
17 schools; 8,000 students
agricultural north and a wealthier coast on the south
20% of the county with Eglin Air Force Base
Sees the Partnership as a "Godsend"
In the third year of the Partnership (hopeful for an extension)
State grade saw a "bump" for the programs offered to students
Credited the Partnership and Brian Barnes for the AVID program
Found a "middle ground" for the students in the district
South Walton already had an AP program in place, but the Partnership brought it to the other schools
Used resources "to the maximum"
"More [teachers] trained than can give courses to" Second year as an AP teacher
Taught 11th grade students and followed first group to the AP Literature class
Four teachers in the department
All have the same AP philosophy
Right now the "focus on students in the course rather than scores" on the AP exam
Thanks to the Partnership, has attended two APSIs at GCCC in Panama City, two one day sessions in Tallahassee
Always has gotten something "immediately useful"
Less apprehensive about the Common Core adoption thanks to AP experience (textual evidence, etc.) since AP students are "already doing those things"
Concern is "money to support the program" and VAM score
iPads
textbooks (photocopies everything)

The Right Direction “We are currently preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using technologies that haven’t been invented, in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.”
Karl Fisch,
Shift Happens! Suzanne Farrar
Instructional Specialist for K-12 & Adult Services (Secondary Issues), Bay District Schools The Florida Partnership
Looking at the changes that the new teacher evaluation tool and student assessments and how they will impact education and programs (like AP programs) within the county
In constant talks with Superintendant Bill Husfelt
Encouraging teachers from all schools within the district to have the conversation Sharon Hofer
Sophomore/Freshman Counselor for the Mosley Advanced Placement Program for Success (MAPPS) Seen a shift in access and equity over the past several years moving beyond the students who had a lower GPA
"All about the philosophy" of AP Access and Equity but is concerned over a return to the exclusivity of the AP courses due to the evaluation process
Understands the concern of teachers about this return to "closing out students" because of the "This is my paycheck" attitude
Shared the recent news story about a a third-grade teacher who received high marks from all five principals she's worked for during 39 years, yet Florida's new evaluation system (the VAM score) gave her a low rating of "needs improvement." Afraid that the new system will remove "exploration" as a part of a child's education
"I don't produce a widget; I teach children." The Encouraging
Start of Conversations:
Why I Believe in the College Board and the Florida Partnership "It's more than a program -- it's a philosophy: hold students accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, and they will rise to the challenge. Reflects informed and challenging quality instruction from teachers
Encourages student involvement and responsibility in his/her own education Encourages literacy in all subjects with an emphasis on text complexity
Increases rigor in the classrooms
Invites vertical teaming within the schools "As a natural outgrowth of meeting the charge to define college and career readiness, the Standards lay a vision of what it means to be a literate person in the twenty-first century...in short, students who meet the Standards develop the skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening that are the foundation for any creative and purposeful expression in language." "Workshops focus on how to effectively use data to improve student achievement." Encourages access and equity (APP)
Provides practical information to immediately affect instruction (APIPR)
Makes data applicable to all stakeholders within the school (SOAS) In 1999, there were a total of 36,507 public school 10th grade PSAT/NMSQT test takers. In 2010, there were a total of 129, 783 PSAT/NMSQT test takers. During this same time, there was also 99.9% growth in black public school SAT test takers and 197.5% growth in Hispanic public school SAT test takers. This 255.5% growth was magnified within the minority communities
the number of black PSAT/NMSQT test takers increased 363.4% (from 5,461 to 26,143)
the number of Hispanic PSAT/NMSQT test takers increased 664.0% (from 4,754 to 36,321) During the same time, the number of AP Exams administered to black students increased 710.3% (from 4,126 to 33,432) Also during the same timeframe, the number of AP Exams administered to Hispanic students increased 536.1% (from 10,167 to 64,674) The number of AP Exams administered to Florida's public school students increased from 59,811 in 1999 to 278,720 2010. cale is awesome.
