A Message from FADSS CEO

We are incredibly thankful that Florida was spared the full wrath of Hurricane Dorian. There is no doubt that the impact would have been catastrophic if there had been a direct hit to the state.

While the impact was minimal, the behind-the-scenes efforts of hundreds of public school employees needs to be acknowledged.

With public schools serving as the main source of shelters during a hurricane, it is important to recognize the hard work of Florida school district staff in opening, staffing and ultimately cleaning these facilities to get them ready to reopen for their primary purpose of educating students.

Did you know that school shelters are primarily staffed by public school employees in a volunteer capacity? And many of these folks are dealing with the same concerns, potential loss, and displacement as shelter guests.

Just look on Twitter and you will see the multitude of posts showing school district staff serving their communities.This is just another example of superintendents and public school employees going #AboveAndBeyond.

And what further strikes me, is that they do it with a smile on their face knowing they are making a positive difference in their communities. This example of self-less service to others is what public education is all about.

I am #FLPublicSchoolProud
