Senator Benacquisto has filed SB 0886 to establish a teacher transfer process for parents and extend school choice options to CAPE certificates.
The phrase ‘controlled open enrollment’ is deleted. This phrase is defined by the Florida Department of Education as follows:
Each school board may offer controlled open enrollment within the public schools in addition to existing choice programs such as magnet schools, alternative schools, special programs, advanced placement and dual enrollment. Controlled open enrollment emphasizes the value of the opportunity for families to choose among existing public schools instead of being assigned to a public school by a school district based on attendance zones.
Does the elimination of ‘controlled open enrollment’ mean that enrollment would now be chaotic? Sometimes one wonders what people are thinking or if they are.
