BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Gov. Ron DeSantis has announced on Saturday that Florida schools K-12 will continue with distance learning for the remainder of the school year.

The announcement came during his press briefing Saturday in Tallahassee.

“We spoke with a lot of folks throughout the state. There were some differing opinions,” said Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“Some parents were not interested in their kids going back, some others were. It’s been tough around the house they would like to see them go back, but I think as we look at the clock and we look to see how what would it would look like, we’ve got pretty good momentum for distance learning. It’s obviously not the ideal situation, but given where we are in the school year, we felt that that was the best decision to go forward.”
