In the summer of 2013, the Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 1720, which provides alternative options for colleges to address the needs of students who are not quite college ready.
During the latest episode of FCAN’s Summit Speaker Series, Dr. Karinda Barrett — Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs with the Division of Florida Colleges — discusses how SB 1720 has changed the delivery of developmental education, academic advising and support services provided by the state’s 28 Florida College System institutions.
The Summit Speaker Series gives a select group of presenters the opportunity to share information about their sessions prior to the 2018 Florida College Access Network Summit. Dr. Barrett will present a session titled, “The State of Developmental Education Reform in Florida,” alongside Elizabeth Barnes, Chair of Academic Support and Faculty at Daytona State College, Troy Miller, FCAN’s Associate Director for Research and Policy, and Dr. Christine G. Mokher, Associate Professor, Educational Leadership & Policy Students at Florida State University.
During her chat with FCAN, Dr. Barrett talked about the impact of SB 1720 on developmental education in Florida, the effect it has had on students, and much more.
