HB 1091

During the 2018 session, the Florida Legislature passed House Bill (HB) 1091. The goal of HB 1091 is to increase quality and accountability for those providers serving students with School Readiness. The law will require all schools with a School Readiness contract to receive a program assessment. CLASS™ known as Classroom Assessment Scoring System is an observational tool and the tool that has been chosen to assess all the programs in the state of Florida. Although the law doesn’t go in effect until July 2019, all SR Providers must register for CLASS™ Observations by December 1, 2018.
