Florida Extends School Campus Closures Through May 1
“While we work together to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, one constant
remains—students can and will continue to receive a great education in
Florida. It is essential that students do not fall behind and are still
receiving instruction, even when they are not in the classroom,” said Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran.
“Florida has superb superintendents and educators whose commitment to
implementing distance learning for all of Florida’s students is
unmatched. It is crucial that we keep students safe and healthy, and I
will continue working with each and every district to ensure that they
have all the resources necessary as we respond to COVID-19.” 3/31/2020

made lightly. Districts have taken action and have instituted distance learning

Florida’s overall public health,” said Commissioner of Education Richard
Corcoran.“We are working with our local school districts to provide guidance
and help children who need access to food during this time. Our number one
priority is keeping our families safe and healthy and stopping the spread of
this virus. These actions will help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Florida.
I will continue to work with the Governor, Superintendents, Florida College
