BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District is seemingly engaged in massive messaging issues, as school officials promote one reality while a different reality is taking place for many.
The Palm Beach County School District released the photo above from Verde Elementary in Boca Raton, showing what in-person education looks like. Inexplicably, there is a teacher who appears to be just a few feet away from two students. There are no plexiglass shields in place. This is an official school district photograph.
But in another Boca Raton-area elementary school, students are in plexiglass boxes — minus a roof. The boxes, made of plexiglass, sit atop student desks. Students are in the “boxes” all day — this is where they learn. This is where they eat. The school district did not release the above photo and has made little mention of set-ups like the one above.
In-person enrollment numbers remain significantly lower than what the Palm Beach County School District expected. Just 54,000 of the district’s 180,000 students returned for in-person learning this week. School Board member Debra Robinson, M.D., said as late as Sunday night that the school district was not ready to reopen. Broward and Miami-Dade counties have now delayed their resumption of in-person learning. Both counties were set to start in early October.
