Local Instructional Improvement System

At a minimum, the proposed LIIS must include functionality defined in the 2011 Florida Statute in section 1006.281, which in part provides for:

  • A system that allows for a single, authenticated sign-on.
  • Vertically searches for, gathers, and organizes specific standards-based instructional materials.
  • Enables teachers to prepare lessons, individualize student instruction, and use best practices in providing instruction, including the ability to connect student assessment data with electronic and digital instructional material.
  • Provides communication, including access to up-to-date student performance data, in order to help teachers and parents better serve the needs of students.
  • Provides access for administrators to ensure quality of instruction within every classroom.
  • Provides an analytical tool for the strategic use of data, statistical analysis, and explanatory and predictive models to gain insights and make decisions and act on complex issues.
  • Enables school district staff to plan, create, and manage professional development and to connect professional development with staff information and student performance data.
  • Provides access to multiple content providers and provides the ability to seamlessly connect the local instructional improvement system to electronic and digital content.

The Florida Department of Education FLDOE has published LIIS Minimum Standards with which DSBPC must comply by June 30, 2014. Typically the functionality described  is provided in LIIS systems having modules with names such as curriculum, instruction, assessment, professional development, analytics, and reporting.

The State of Florida is renaming LIIS to Digital Classroom System.
