Florida Association for District School Superintendents

  • 2015 Legislative Platform

    Superintendents want Florida to lead the nation in K-12 education. We need legislation that will give us the financial resources and also remove the restrictive obstacles that hinder progress towards that end.

  • Email Pitfalls Course Added to FADSS' Online Risk Management Training Program

    Florida’s public sector has learned that the convenience of new technology communication can come with a cost.

FADSS now offers an online course to train staff to steer clear of this dangerous trend.

FADSS now offers an online course that will prepare all staff to respond quickly and appropriately to any public records request.
