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.

What Educators Around Florida Are Saying About The Prototype

It’s so standards-driven. I think it would be really successful in helping students master the standards. There’s nothing extraneous. It’s very purposeful throughout; helping students advance through the goals.

Educational Leader

This makes it easy because we see all the different reading standards, communication, vocabulary standards - all there together. So that kind of creates the ‘stack’ for you.

Classroom Teacher


One of the big plusses is how closely it ties to the social studies. And in the middle school, they very often are trying to find ways to collaborate with social studies or science. I think that's, that's a big draw.
