State & Federal Reports

The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (FSDB) files school public accountability and school improvement reports with the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE), as also mandated by federal educational requirements.

School Public Accountability Reports

Each year, the state of Florida publishes School Public Accountability Reports (SPARs), as required by the federal Elementary and Secondary School Act (ESEA). These reports provide parents with information at the beginning of each year about the school’s data from the previous year.


School Improvement Plans

Section 1001.42(18), Florida Statutes requires district school boards to annually approve and require implementation of a school improvement plan (SIP) for each school in the district. The FLDOE SIP template meets all statutory and rule requirements for traditional public schools and incorporates all components required for schools receiving Title I funds under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.

The FSDB School Advisory Council (SAC) works in tandem with School Advisory Councils (sub-SACs) to facilitate the development of state School Improvement Plans (SIPs) for each school, monitors SIP implementation, and evaluates SIP effectiveness. The SAC meets at regular intervals throughout the school year; all SAC meetings are open to the public.

Members of the SAC include two FSDB principals, an appropriately balanced number of teachers, educational support employees, students, parents, and community/business members who represent the ethnic, racial, and economic communities served by FSDB.
