SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — As Seminole County schools close out the first 9 weeks of classes many teachers are preparing for students to return to the classroom.
While the number of students returning is still lower than normal the district thinks teachers will be able to handle the changes.
“We are still not at 50% and even with the 4500 that are returning to us on Monday our schools still have the ability to do what they have been doing,” said district spokesperson Michael Lawrence.
The district says the real challenge could come in January when more Seminole Connect and virtual students are expected to return to face-to-face learning.
“We know the Governor may make a decision in terms of whether that emergency order expires or not but we believe and it is our hope that we continue on with the options we have this school year and for the remainder of the school year,” Lawrence says.
