37% of Students to Begin School Year Participating in Remote Learning

Thirty-seven (37) percent of K-12 students enrolled in the Martin County School District will begin the 2020-2021 school year participating in remote learning, according to data presented to the School Board on July 28, 2020.
In accordance with Emergency Order 2020-EO-06 issued by Commissioner Richard Corcoran of the Florida Department of Education earlier this month, the following back-to-school learning options have been made available to Martin County students:
Students return to school full-time, five days a week in the traditional face-to-face classroom setting with increased health and safety measures in place.
Remote learning will allow students to attend school from home, receiving direct instruction from their classroom teachers via livestream each day.
To streamline the choice process, parents/guardians who wished to enroll their child(ren) in Option 1: Traditional (In School) Learning were not asked to take any action. 
Parents/guardians who preferred to have their child(ren) participate in Option 2: Remote Learning were asked to complete a commitment form. Responses were accepted July 10 - 24, 2020.
Data presented during the School Board meeting was disaggregated by grade level and subgroup. Additional details are available here.
