    This all fucking sucks. But slightly comforted to see there is a well thought out plan in place. There looks to be a lot of work and $ going towards helping all kids get computer/Internet access as needed, which is great. We'll start with distance learning and won't return to in-person school until certain metrics are met as far as downward trends in cases / positive case% / icu capacity.

    Jigga fyi - not sure if you have kids

    Reopening plan - 52 page plan:
    https://www.palmbeachschools.org/Us...ols/Reopening Plan for Board Presentation.pdf

    Distance learning start voted yes. Pre-K, K, 1st, 6th, 9th grade will return to in-person school first:
    https://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/...0200715-gegtpztlqzaz5n3wel2wln6ana-story.html
    "As COVID-19 continues to spread, students in Palm Beach County will start the school year at home with the distance learning methods they been using since March.
    When they’ll go back to school buildings remains undecided, but it could be as soon as Aug. 31.
    The schedule is subject to change based on the trend of the pandemic, the School Board decided this week. School is scheduled to start Aug. 10.
    Prekindergarten, kindergarten, first grade, sixth grade and ninth grade students would come back to classes in person when the county health advisory board deems it safe. Students in second, third, seventh and 10th grade would begin two weeks after that. The remaining grades would return two weeks after that.
    Masks will be required on school buses whenever students return. Keith Oswald, the school district’s chief academic officer, said the district is ordering enough washable and reusable masks to give five to each student and disposable ones to keep on hand at schools in case students forget their reusable ones.
    The Palm Beach County School Board will vote on an in-person start date next week and then send its reopening plan to the state for approval."

    Start of school currently set for August 10th, but going to be delayed, not sure how long:
    https://www.wptv.com/news/education...ty-school-year-will-be-delayed-but-until-when
    "PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Parents, the school year in Palm Beach County will be delayed.
    But by how long is still unclear.
    That's what Dr. Donald Fennoy, the superintendent of the School District of Palm Beach County, said on Thursday morning, just hours after the school board voted 7-0 to start the 2020-21 academic year with distance learning for all students.
    "The board's will and pleasure right now is to delay it, and it will be delayed," Fennoy said."


    So we can remain distance learning if we want:

    Duval county took 6 hours to vote on delaying the start of the year 10 days. Still either full in-person or full online.

    Wife teaches private but they will follow the county on this...and as long as she has to go in, I have to send the kid.

    The fact that my wife's school is doing in-person is dumb af to me btw.
    - It's high school, meaning the kids are all old enough to stay home by themselves if the parents are forced to work in-person
    - they're all issued iPads so all of their coursework is online already
    - because it's a well-to-do private school, most of them are college bound and self-motivators anyway(or their parents are heavily involved in their education)

    should just make the call for indefinite distance learning, push the start date back a few weeks, and use that time to get kids connected.

    Schools shouldn’t start until at least January. The nation should go on lock down for the next 3 months and there should be a nation wide mask mandate. A stimulus package should be passed of at lease 1200 a month per adult and around 600 per child for the the rest of the year.

    with that we could get back to normal. It wouldn’t be that difficult. We could have done this already we could be close to a new normal.

    Just saw that. Please let your families know about Comcast internet essentials. Its free internet for any family on any type of assistance or reduced or free lunches. I do feel bad for some of the kids in the district though as I know many especially the ones in Jackson I work with come from single parents households with a working parent.

    My wife did this back in March through the end of the school year in June under the FFCRA. It is protected leave and she was paid 2/3 of her salary. Your wife should check it out if she hasn’t already.
