TAMPA, Fla. – Florida’s Education Commissioner, Richard Corcoran, says ‘all of the state’s school campuses must be open in the fall unless the governor or health officials say otherwise.’
Corcoran issued the emergency order Monday, stating that “extended school closures can impede the educational success of students, impact families’ well-being and limit many parents and guardians from returning to work.”
“Upon reopening in August, all school boards and charter school governing boards must open brick and mortar schools at least five days per week for all students, subject to advice and orders of the Florida Department of Health, local departments of health, Executive Order 20-149 and subsequent executive orders,” the executive order states.
