In August 2015, we welcomed the Florida Inclusion Network (FIN) Facilitator. The FIN facilitator will primarily work in Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa counties with families and districts to develop inclusive educational opportunities for exceptional education students. This includes assisting districts with Flexible Scheduling and the Best Practices in Education (BPIE) instrument, in addition to many professional development opportunities offered in partnership with FDLRS training staff.

Continuous assessment ensures our services are aligned with local needs. We appreciate our partnership with you as we work together on behalf of all our children.
We look forward to serving you!
