1007.01 Articulation; legislative intent; purpose; role of the State Board of Education and the Board of Governors.--
(1) It is the intent of the Legislature to facilitate articulation and seamless integration of the K-20 education system by building and sustaining relationships among K-20 public organizations, between public and private organizations, and between the education system as a whole and Florida's communities. The purpose of building and sustaining these relationships is to provide for the efficient and effective progression and transfer of students within the education system and to allow students to proceed toward their educational objectives as rapidly as their circumstances permit.
(2) To improve and facilitate articulation systemwide, the State Board of Education and the Board of Governors shall recommend policies and guidelines to the Legislature with input from statewide K-20 advisory groups established by the Commissioner of Education relating to:
(a) The alignment between the exit requirements of one system and the admissions requirements of another system into which students typically transfer.
(b) The identification of common courses, the level of courses, institutional participation in a statewide course numbering system, and the transferability of credits among such institutions.
(c) Identification of courses that meet general education or common degree program prerequisite requirements at public postsecondary educational institutions.
(d) Dual enrollment course equivalencies.
(e) Articulation agreements.
