If, like most parents, you have been losing sleep, wondering what is going to happen now that schools are almost back, you may now have your answers. To help you break down your options, Orange County Public Schools has put together three options.
#1, send your kids back to school full time, following the full time schedule, #2, send your kids back to school using LaunchEd, where your kids will go back to their regular schedule, following their regular curriculum, but will instead stay home and follow the regular schedule from the comfort and safety of your own home, or #3, send your child to Florida Virtual School. Florida Virtual is a unique option where its sort of self paced, and gives your child the option to study at their leisure, with access to lesson plans and instructors as needed.
Although the school system has put together these three unique options designed to provide as much opportunity as possible, OCPS is encouraging as many parents to elect the LaunchEd option, if parents have the ability to let their children stay home. This option seems like it would provide the most safety and not overwhelm the Public School System during this difficult time.
