Every Florida Child Deserves the Best Education Possible

Like most parents, I’m going through a transition to the “new normal” of working from home (thankful to have a job) while also having my children at home doing schoolwork online. It has been an adjustment! Each day, the teachers are refining their methods of how they post assignments and videos and give guidance to their students, who are also transitioning to this new way of instruction. I am blessed that my children have a great school that is working for them – even through this crazy and challenging time.

Many families, even during non-COVID 19 circumstances, don’t have a school that is working for their child. The school may be too big, and their child gets lost in the crowd. The child may have special needs that require unique intervention and therapy support. The school may be great for most other students, but not quite what their child needs to be their best. Schools and teachers have so much responsibility, it is nearly an impossible task to expect them to be the perfect fit for every child

Options in education can be a lifeline for parents who know their child needs a different learning environment to succeed. Yet the hardest part is knowing where to start.  That’s why www.MyChoicesinEdFL.org was created. 


Using this free website, Florida parents can fill out a few survey questions about their child’s needs and receive personalized results on every K-12 Florida scholarship program for which their child qualifies. Here are some examples:

  • If your child has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or a 504 accommodation plan, he or she may be eligible for a scholarship that allows students to attend a different public school within your school district, a public school outside of your district or even a participating private school.
  • If your child is struggling to be a strong reader, he or she may be eligible for a flexible scholarship account of up to $500 to cover tutoring and related expenses.
  • For families zoned to a low-performing public school, their children are guaranteed a seat in a higher-performing public school through yet another statewide scholarship program. 

Best of all, every personalized report has direct links to where parents can apply to participate. In less than two minutes, parents can have the information they need to know their options and make important decisions to help their child.

With classroom disruptions during this highly challenging year, do you know all your options to help your child keep doing their best? Now is the time to learn what Florida resources can support your student’s learning. 

A strong K-12 education is the foundation that builds our children’s lifelong love of learning and discovery. 

Florida has the nation’s most robust set of school options, recognizing that all children are unique and deserve a learning environment that works best. I want the best possible educational fit for my children, and I know you do too. 

Completing the short questionnaire at www.MyChoicesinEdFL.org is the best place to start.
