BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Numbers just released by the Palm Beach County School District reveal that roughly 54,000 students returned for “in person” learning Monday while 107,000 remained home for “distance learning.”
The numbers are similar, but not identical, to what the school district expected.
“We estimate up to 54,000 students attended physical school today through district run schools,” said Spokeswoman Claudia Shea to BocaNewsNow.com. “That’s roughly 90 percent of the just over 60,000 that we expected. Distance learning saw up to 107,000 students present and 3,000 students absent.”
The official numbers are a work in progress. The school district’s IT department has to reconcile attendance taken by teachers with “logins” on the school district’s computer system.
At one point, the Palm Beach County School District expected a near 50/50 split. But it is apparent that the majority of families in Palm Beach County opted to keep their kids home as reports of problems and lack of preparedness continued.
