Resources for Safely Reopening Schools

June 16, 2020 Update:

President Fedrick Ingram sent a letter to school district superintendents around the state to make clear FEA’s position on reopening schools.

Parents’ views on the reopening of schools as determined by an FEA-commissioned poll.


June 2, 2020 Update:

We are committed to ensuring the safety of the students who attend Florida’s public schools, colleges, and universities as well as the faculty and staff who work in them.

To that end, we have called on Richard Corcoran, Commissioner of Education, to convene a task force made up of health professionals, educators and students to work together and create a plan for a safe reopening of schools.

While we hope that Commissioner Corcoran will heed our call, we have already begun the work of bringing experts together to have these important discussions and to begin the work of coming up with plans for a safe reopening of Florida’s schools.

Resources this group will be using as well as the documents they create will be stored here so they can be viewed by FEA members as well as parents, students, and others who are concerned with a safe reopening of our schools.
