BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis seemingly blew a dog whistle via Twitter a short time ago. Here’s what he posted:
“I am urging Florida’s school superintendents to ensure parents have the choice between in-person and distance learning for their kids. Many school districts need a few extra weeks to safely reopen and they may do so. Find contact info for your district here.”
The attached link leads to email addresses for school districts and, in many cases, school superintendents.
Palm Beach County School District is opening August 31st for distance learning only. “Distance Learning” will continue until it safe to return to school, regardless of which “phase“ the county is in.
The current pediatric positivity rate in Palm Beach County continues to be 14 percent — significantly higher than 3% to 5% the Florida Academy of Pediatrics says must be met before in-person education can resume.
