Transforming Education

Flagler Schools continues to expand and grow our opportunities for students to experience relevant and rigorous learning experiences that are aligned with the needs of our community. New courses in web and software design, technology in business, and criminal justice operations are just a few opportunities we have added. Career and Technical Education at both the middle and high school level continues to expand to prepare the workforce of the future.

Two new Flagship programs have entered the pathway for the 2018-19 school year. The Law and Justice Flagship is now a part of Matanzas High School and Flagler Palm Coast High School has added the Future Educators of Flagler Teaching Flagship.

We now offer international curriculums and advanced diploma opportunities at both high schools. The International Baccalaureate Program continues to thrive at FPCHS and we have implemented the Cambridge AICE (Advanced International Certification of Education) program at Matanzas High School.

Funding ClassroomsThrough Teacher Grants

The Flagler County Education Foundation works closely with Flagler Schools to help transform our classrooms into the creative spaces necessary to empower innovation in our teachers and students.

The Education Foundation provides Innovative Teacher Grants for classroom projects to engage students and prepare them for career exploration throughout their school career.

Innovative Teacher grants are awarded to teachers who initiate classroom projects that enhance and engage students to increase their effectiveness. In response to workforce needs, classroom learning has moved away from content based learning to skills based learning, requiring students to use higher level thinking and problem solving strategies. By engaging students in new and creative ways teachers are able to be more effective in reaching educational goals.

“We were able to purchase and make calming kits that were delivered to many classrooms at Rymfire. They have helped students and teachers use these calming tools in times of stress or anxiety. Because of these kits, students are learning coping strategies. We would not have been able to do this if it wasn’t for the grant. We are so thankful!”

“The BES garden is a focal point of our school and the Education Foundation has been instrumental in its growth and expansion. Our student’s interest, and yes, love of “anything garden” is off the chart! The excitement of growing their own food to use in healthy recipes is immense. When kids ask “when they can have a salad bar?” you know they are hooked!”

“The real-world learning experiences that I have been able to provide, and the interest that it has created in our students can only be summarized as awesome. Students who are engaged and interested in topics, enjoy coming to school, and do not see their assignments as “have-tos”. They enjoy the work because it is really interesting to them, and they learn regardless of the task.”
