Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources
FEA has a collection of resources for members, educators and parents to help understand and cope with the changing conditions affecting Florida’s students, schools and educators due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will update these as new information is made available. (We encourage everyone to do their best to follow the CDC recommendations on social distancing).
FEA update (Mar. 17; Mar. 23 update): To comply with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, FEA staff will be working remotely through April 6. Please frequently check back for further updates. FEA staff will continue to be available through email, phone and voicemail. During this difficult time, FEA is committed to advocating for the wellbeing of our members and students. We will continue to provide you information on COVID-19’s impact on the state of education, notices from the Florida Department of Education, and the end of the legislative session. Thank you and stay well.
March is Music and Arts in Our Schools Month
As educators we know that music and the arts positively affect students’ overall school engagement, college aspirations and civic engagement. The purpose of Music and Arts in Our Schools Month is to raise awareness of the importance of music, art, and theater education for all children – and to remind the public — and lawmakers — that all children should have access to the arts at school. Students are more likely to find all school work enjoyable when they have art and music instruction. See what the music program means to FEA member Shenita Hunt and her students.
