This fall, parents and school employees have been forced to make extremely tough choices with scant, confusing and often contradictory health and safety guidance from their local, state and federal government.
Against this backdrop, FEA’s Safe Schools Report is an effort to collect and display important, factual information surrounding the opening of school campuses across the state. We hope that in some small way the information displayed on this page will help our members and Florida’s families find the crucial information they need to navigate the competing concerns brought on by the pandemic.
The Florida Department of Health has stopped providing daily updates. As a result, we will no longer regularly update this page. The numbers on this site reflect what the Department of Health reported through June 2, 2021.
