About Us

Welcome to FDLRS-South

The Florida Diagnostic & Learning Resources System (FDLRS) is a discretionary project of the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) Bureau of Exceptional Student Education (BESE). BESE directly supports the FLDOE's Guiding Principles and Strategic Initiatives.

The FDLRS Associate Centers provide an array of instructional and technical support services to school district Exceptional Student Education programs statewide. The four central functions of each FDLRS Associate Center are Child Find, Parent Services, Human Resource Development, and Technology. FDLRS includes 19 Associate Centers that serve Florida’s sixty-seven school districts. These centers collaborate with districts, agency and support personnel, communities, families, and other educational personnel providing support services for educators, parents, school administrators, and students with exceptionalities. Funding also supports implementation of the Professional Development Alternatives (PDA). PDA online modules are designed to provide Florida teachers with widely available, easily accessible opportunities to increase their skills in the area of exceptional student education.

FDLRS-South is an Associate Center serving KIPP:Miami, Miami-Dade County, and Monroe County,  and is an integral part of district efforts to provide quality services to the educational community through implementation of state educational goals and priorities.
