The Everglades Foundation has directed most of our employees to work remotely from home for the time being. Be assured that our work continues. We will continue to monitor developments affecting America’s Everglades at both the state and federal levels. During this time of social distancing, I urge you to check out the K-12 Teacher Toolkit, encourage your colleagues to join our Everglades Literacy Facebook Group, or follow us on your favorite social media platforms, such as Facebook:@evergladesfoundation, Twitter: @evergfoundation, and Instagram: @evergladesfoundation.
The Everglades Foundation’s Education Team is continuing its efforts to provide support and materials to teachers during school closures. Beginning today and over the next few weeks we will be putting together online resources for teachers and students and modifying our Champion Schools rubric to maximize school success.
Please, be careful and heed the directions of public health and government officials. Together, we will all get through this

The Everglades Literacy Program is a call to action for schools, teachers, and students to ensure that future generations of Floridians understand the ecological and economic value of the Everglades ecosystem. Our goals are laid out by curriculum design, professional development, instruction assessment, and student learning outcomes:
GOAL 1: Curriculum Design for Authentic Learning and alignment to Florida Standards
GOAL 2: Professional Learning and Implementation
GOAL 3: Student Engagement and Career Connections
The Everglades Literacy Program hosts Teacher Trainings and classroom presentations, participates in Science Nights, and provides a free, online Teacher Toolkit with 36 comprehensive Everglades lesson plans that align with Florida Standards.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK
THE FOLLOWING PARTNERS FOR GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND
