37% of MC Students Will Begin School Year with Remote Learning

July 29, 2020

Thirty-seven (37) percent of K-12 students enrolled in the Martin County School District will begin the 20-21 school year participating in remote learning, according to data presented to the School Board on Tuesday.

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:

Option 1: Traditional (In School) Learning

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.

Option 2: Remote Learning

Students 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 10th - July 24th, 2020.

Data presented during Tuesday's School Board meeting was disaggregated by grade level and subgroup. Additional details are available here.
