Transparency, Accountability, Progress, and Performance
The Florida College System is committed to making additional information about the students and colleges we serve accessible. Below is a list of data-intensive Transparency, Accountability, Progress and Performance Questions and brief (one to three page) statewide answers. In most cases, a spreadsheet is attached containing individual college trend data which can be used to identify best in class performers.
Questions addressed are tied to Stepping Up: A Strategic Plan for The Florida College System (PDF, 849KB) and topics about which stakeholders have inquired. We welcome any questions for us at Eric.Godin@fldoe.org or Kathyrine.Scheuch@fldoe.org.
