Agenda Item #29


Title
Approval of Proposed Additions to Major Areas of Interest

Discussion
In order to ensure that Major Areas of Interest (MAI) are relevant and appropriate for our schools, a proposal to the Florida Department of Education was submitted to add courses to six existing MAIs.  The changes include the proposal of new dual enrollment courses for the Integrated Early Childhood Education DE Brevard MAI to reflect changes in the program at Brevard Community College.  In addition, science courses were proposed to five MAIs, including the newly approved Experimental Science I-IV courses which were recently added to the Course Code Directory.  A complete listing of courses proposed to the existing MAIs is attached.

Recommendation
Approve the proposed course additions to existing Major Areas of Interest submitted to the Florida Department of Education.
