Florida Makes Decision on Schools

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – On Monday, Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran issued an executive order requiring all public schools to reopen in August. The order calls for all institutions that teach K-12 to be open for students at least 5 days per week.

Some are questioning the plan because the state has seen a spike in coronavirus cases in recent weeks. But officials are taking precautions.

According to the order, before a school can reopen, it must submit a health and safety plan to their district. They’ll also be required to show how they plan to monitor learning gaps during the pandemic.

Shortly after Corcoran’s executive order was signed, President Trump tweeted about reopenings.

Reopening schools across the country will make it easier for parents who have to work and it’s just better for kids who need those social interactions. Officials in the Sunshine State are on the same page as the president.

While all schools are included, the final okay for each will be given by the Florida Department of Education. Students will also have the option to learn virtually.

These are uncertain times and parents will have a decision to make in the coming weeks.
