DeSantis wants to re-open schools to full capacity this fall

Gov. Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said Thursday, June 11, 2020 he wants Florida schools to re-open at full capacity in the fall. He announced state recommendations for a return to on-site teaching, but the details will be decided at the local level. 

"We believe those are locally driven decisions," he said. "We believe what that looks like may look different in Brevard [County] than it does in Miami-Dade [County] than it does in Baker County, and so we want to empower not just the superintendents, but all the local stakeholders to be able to craft a solution that makes the most sense for that area."

DeSantis’ plan, constructed by the Re-Open Florida Task Force along with the Florida Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, provides a "road map" to support health and safety measures amid COVID-19 and focusing on closing achievement gaps, DeSantis said.

Local schools are encouraged to work with their local health department and medical experts, to establish their own, unique protocols for reopening schools.
