Parental Rights


Florida is taking bold steps to protect parental rights and ensure the lawfulness of instructional materials. If you believe you have found unlawful materials in your school or you are just unsure how to voice your concerns, please see the helpful information below:

Share your Concerns Directly with the Florida Department of Education

Email your concerns to ParentalRights@fldoe.org along with any supporting information.

Contact your School’s Principal

Florida law now requires School Principals to be responsible for instructional and library materials on their campuses – you should always feel free to share your concerns directly with your child’s school’s principal.

Review Your School District’s Policies Online

Florida law now requires school districts to adopt and post policies online for several parental rights, including means for the public to review instructional and library materials, and processes for the public to challenge and voice their complaints about those materials. For questions, review your district’s policies online, and if necessary, contact your child’s school’s principal or the school district.

Pornographic/Harmful Material Complaints:

Florida law makes it illegal for an adult to knowingly distribute to a minor on school property, or post on school property, any pornographic or harmful materials, as defined in law. If you have questions or concerns regarding the potential introduction of pornographic or other materials harmful to minors within your child’s school, please contact your local state attorney’s office.
