The intent of the Legislature in creating the database was to provide “a service to the public, to governmental agencies, and to other interested parties” and not to “regulate, control, approve or accredit private educational institutions.” Section 1002.42(2)(h), Florida Statutes. As such, the Department of Education does not verify the accuracy of the data submitted pursuant to the annual survey and inclusion of a school’s information in the database does not imply approval or accreditation by the Department of Education.
