BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District is preparing for a mid-Friday morning news conference to announce what can best be described as “alterations” to the educational program for the second half of the school year. To keep it simple: if you’re happy with what you’re doing, you can keep doing it. If your child is having a problem with distance learning, you may be notified by the school district that your child should return to school. If you love distance learning — and many do — you can keep on keeping on. And if you want to switch to “in person” learning, that’s an option, too.
Here’s the media update sent by the school district late Thursday:
The School District of Palm Beach County is holding a news conference to provide educational updates impacting the Spring 20201 semester. Superintendent Donald Fennoy, and members of his Academic Team, will share important information that parents need before deciding if they would like their child to be educated through in-person or distance learning instruction for the second semester.
Governor Ron DeSantis extended the choice option for parents for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. The Governor’s Executive Order allowing this also mandates assurances from Districts, including encouraging the parents of students who are not making adequate progress in distance learning to return for in-person instruction.
While appropriate interventions are important for all students and are currently being performed by principals, those families who have chosen distance learning, but are continuing to struggle academically, will be prioritized for returning to in-person instruction.
