Empowering Parents, Protecting Students
The safety of Florida’s public school students is of the utmost importance. The Department of Education is committed to working closely with local school districts to ensure that Florida public schools and classrooms are safe and healthy environments for our children. Students are not only protected by their teachers, school staff, principals, and resource officers, but also by district personnel, state officials and law enforcement officers.
While school administrators and teachers are highly valued professionals and members of our communities, we must all work together to hold Florida school administrators and teachers to a high standard of ethics and principles. Unfortunately, school administrator and teacher misconduct occurs and is a serious concern for communities, schools, school districts and states across the country. If you suspect that a child has been harmed or is threatened with harm by a school administrator or licensed teacher, contact the Florida Department of Children & Families (DCF) toll-free at 1-800-96-ABUSE. Further information about reporting abuse may be found on the DCF Web site at www.dcf.state.fl.us/abuse. You may also contact your local school district because each district has its own process for handling allegations of teacher misconduct.
Out of Field Teacher
A parent whose student is assigned an out-of-field teacher may request that his or her child be transferred to an infield classroom teacher within the school and grade in which the student is currently enrolled. The school must approve or deny the parent's request and transfer the student to a different classroom teacher within two weeks, if an in-field teacher for that course or grade level is employed by the school and the transfer does not violate class size. The school must notify parents and specify the reason of any transfer requests that are denied.
