Superintendent Jackie Pons and the Leon County School Board proudly request the review of documents and materials for the designation of African American Exemplary Status School District by the State of Florida’s Task Force on African American History. Leon County Schools has noted the importance to ensure the delivery of appropriate instruction regarding African and African American history across all curriculum areas. The intent of this vitally important curriculum is to provide our students with authentic and meaningful instruction that gives them a better understanding of the plight of African Americans.
Through this site, evidence, resources and curriculum noting the infusion of African and African American History are clearly documented and represented throughout all subject areas and grade levels. With a conscience effort from all Leon County Schools stakeholders, we have recognized the need to actively pursue the instructional teaching of African and African American History into the daily instructional curriculum. All stakeholders make a concerted effort to infuse faithfully and appropriately instruction regarding the history of African Americans, including the history of African people before the political conflicts that led to the development of slavery, the passage to America, the enslavement experience, abolition, and the many notable contributions of African Americans to society.
