English/Language Arts


Department ChairMrs. Holly Kendrick

The Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts which includes reading standards, were adopted by the Florida State Board of Education on July 27, 2010. In summer of 2010 the Florida Department of Education convened a state committee to determine if additional content (up to 15%) was needed to satisfy English language arts requirements in Florida. Based on the results of this study, in the fall of 2010 the Department recommended no additions be made to the original Common Core State Standards adopted in July 2010. These standards are to be fully implemented with the beginning of the 2013-14 school year.

Presently, the standards adopted in 2007, now called the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Reading/ Language Arts, are the standards being taught in the classroom and assessed on FCAT 2.0 Reading Assessment.


ECSD's English Language Arts mission statement is to provide an environment where students can enhance their learning through the integration of all language arts, empowering them to become clear and confident communicators in all settings. In addition, our ELA classes at Ransom focus on improving reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills that students can apply to other subjects.
