The Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) is the agency that oversees public education in the state and manages both finances and operations for public education institutions. The FLDOE is managed by the Florida Commissioner for Education and is the responsibility of the Governor. The Florida Board of Education or the State Board of Education assists the FLDOE by managing K-12 and community college education in the state. The FLDOE supports over 3,800 public schools and over 2.6 million students across the states are benefited. The department also supports over 180,000 teachers of public schools in the state.

Introduced as part of the A+ Plan, the FCAT is administered thrice a year to every student from grades three to eleven in public schools. Funding to a school is apportioned on the basis of the school’s performance in the FCAT. The schools are graded from A to F and the evaluation criteria include student performance and the school’s improvement over past performances.
