The Amy H Remley Foundation  

Grade 9-12

This site is currently under development, please be patient while this page is being written.


These Bodies of Knowledge (BOK) do not represent courses. Courses such as Physics, Chemistry, or Biology will be developed from these standards, and individual courses may have standards from more than one BOK.

The * (sunbursts) denote benchmarks that include content that all students should know and be able to do. These benchmarks are considered to be appropriate for statewide assessment or end of course exams. There are some Florida science courses with curriculum defined by other organizations (such as College Board for Advanced Placement Physics or International Baccalaureate science courses). Access points have been developed for the sunburst benchmarks in the BOK's of Nature of Science, Earth and Space Science, Physical Science, and Life Science.

The benchmarks shown with a background green color are those which are considered appropriate to an Environmental Science course.
