“Large school districts across Florida are dropping plans to offer Advanced Placement Psychology, heeding a warning from state officials that the course’s discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity violates state law.”

Despite media reports to the contrary, we here at the Florida Department of Education are committed to offering AP Psychology to high school students in our state. However, there are several concepts within the course that will need to be handled delicately in the classroom. It is our hope that a few careful revisions, reflected in the following student handouts, will enable teachers to deliver all course content in full while still reflecting the values, beliefs, and moral principles that we as Floridians hold dear.
