Implement Florida's best Standards
based on Implementation science
from the lead best standards author

In the Unites States, 21 states still use the adopted version of the Common Core State Standards(CCSS). Many other states are currently writing and implementing their own standards or a revised version of the CCSS. Any new adoption of standards relies on a successful implementation.
Successful implementation will require training, consistent ongoing support, and an integrated approach framed by deep content knowledge. As coauthors of Florida's BEST Standards and an integral part of the development, design, and adoption process, Equitable Literacy Consultants are uniquely qualified to support your implementation.
