PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – Students that chose to return to the traditional classroom or e-learning instruction, are a week in now, and Pasco School Superintendent Kurt Browning said ‘it was as smooth of a reopening of schools that he has seen’.

“We had a great first week. We’ve been planning for months, but you never really know how well prepared you are until you put it into practice,” said Browning, “I visited a number of schools and I was impressed with what I saw. Students were wearing masks, and they seemed thrilled to be back in class. Happy to see their classmates and their teachers. They were on task.”

Students and families were given a choice to send their kids back to brick and mortar school or to enroll them in MySchool Online, which requires students to follow the standard school schedule, or virtual school, which offers flexible scheduling.

“We had a high level of engagement online.I know that some other districts experience widespread technical glitches. We did not,” said Browning.

“We absolutely want to ensure that your child is enrolled in the learning option that best fits your student and your family. At the same time, it is more important than ever, that we provide instructional continuity for all our students, especially after the disruptions at the end of last school year. Please be mindful to settle in on your decision and plan to preserve it through the semester or at least through the quarter.” Browning added in a video address to the public.
