MILTON, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's Board of Education is preparing to review revisions the Legislature made to the state's Common Core standards.

The board is scheduled to meet Tuesday in the Panhandle town of Milton. Among the agenda items is a review of recent changes made to statewide standards.

Bills recently signed by Gov. Rick Scott include a provision giving parents a chance to object to textbooks used at public schools and a bill delaying for one year sanctions associated with the state's grading system for public schools.

The changes are part of the state's tweaking of national public school standards known as Common Core, which are designed in part to allow more accurate state-by-state comparisons of student performance.
