Dear Florida CEC Members, 

I hope this message finds you and your family keeping well. 

As the 2020-21 school year ends, I hope you take a moment to reflect on your strength, resilience, and dedication to teaching, learning, and leading during this time of crisis as Covid upended many aspects of our lives. Your unwavering commitment to the exceptional community—children, families, educators, community members, advocates—has been remarkable during this time. On behalf of the FCEC Board, I express a heartfelt appreciation for all you do for our exceptional community! 

There are a few important announcements to share with you. 

  • CANCELED: Our Florida CEC Leadership event that was scheduled on Saturday June 26, 2021 from 9 am to noon. We are working on integrating aspects of this event at our annual conference in October.
