ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — About 15,000 students in Orange County will walk into a classroom for the first time this school year.

Last month, parents were given the choice to switch their children from online learning to face-to-face learning at the start of the second quarter, which begins Tuesday.

Many families chose to say goodbye to LaunchEd at home, the district’s online learning program. But once students step into the classroom, their decision is set for the rest of the semester.

More changes could come as thousands of students will trade in their computer and transition to in-person learning.

Last month, the district discussed what students could expect when they come back to school. Many officials said students may not get the same teacher they had during online learning.

In other cases, more classrooms might need to be added.

Increased cleaning and social distancing measures will remain the same.

About 40%-50% of students will return to the classroom Tuesday.
