According to a senior chancellor with the Florida Department of Education, eleven school districts that submitted LGBTQ+ support guides to state education officials this fall will have to update policies. In August, Education Commissioner Manny Diaz Jr. directed staff members to “pull” district support guides to review their content.

Senior Chancellor Jacob Oliva told State Board of Education members on Wednesday that 31 districts submitted support guides and policies, with 11 required to update the documents to comply with state laws.
