Amendment 8

School Board Term Limits and Duties; Public Schools

Source: Constitution Revision Commission

The Supreme Court has removed Amendment 8 from the November 2018 Ballot, upholding the decision by a lower court that Amendment 8 misled voters by not clearly stating its true purpose and never mentioning charter schools by name.
Amendment 8 was drafted by the CRC and was one of several “bundled” amendments — ballot proposals that contain several, sometimes unrelated issues.

Quick Summary: Mandates term limits of eight years for all Florida school boards; allows the state to create public schools, something only local school boards currently can do; and requires schools to teach “civic literacy.”
