FCAT Call Center
Beginning Monday, May 21, DOE experts will be available to answer parent questions from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Parents may call 866-507-1109 to ask questions about FCAT, recent changes to Florida’s accountability system, and how this impacts students and teachers.

The website features a letter from Commissioner Robinson, timelines about Florida’s education system, a question and answer page, and video from a Florida public school parent.
In partnership with Novachi, the department is launching the DOE Parent Portal. This public forum is designed for parents to ask questions and voice ideas at the state level. The portal features a parent blog, discussion board, and announcements page with more education resources coming soon. Parents may logon for access to this free user-friendly site.
