  • 8/23/16 STATEMENT: Pledge of Allegiance Non Participation

    A change to Florida law this year requires all school districts to publish in the student code of conduct booklet the students’ right to not participate in reciting the pledge of allegiance. In complying with the change in law, our staff developed a form for parents to use to exercise that right. Superintendent Pons received several messages from the community in regards to this process and-- upon further inspection--made the decision to remove the form and revise the code of conduct booklet. We apologize for any confusion the form may have caused. We understand that approximately 400 paper copies were distributed before the superintendent stopped the process.
