Board Members Considering The Latest COVID Reopening Plan, After Florida Department of Education Vetoes Plan Board Previously Approved
Watch Live, Below
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The drama that is the 2020-2021 school year is playing out live right now in Palm Beach County. The School Board is meeting right now to consider a new plan — newer than the plan it approved a few weeks ago — for reopening.
If you’re late to the party, the Palm Beach County School District approved a plan that would eventually bring students back in phases once health and other officials determine it’s safe to do so. But Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Dept. of Education didn’t like that plan, wanting everyone back at the same time.
Superintendent Donald Fennoy crafted a new plan that would offer in-person education to anyone who wants it, while simultaneously offering remote education as well.
The School Board is now deciding whether that “new” plan is acceptable.
Expect the meeting — which started at 2 p.m. (Wednesday, August 12, 2020), to continue for several hours.
