Message from Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho:
Distance learning will continue after spring break since schools closures will last until at least April 15. Distribution of devices has been extended until March 18th. If you need one/have tech issues w/ one you borrowed, it’s best to call your school ahead of time.
All statewide assessments, exams students would have to take for graduation purposes or for promotion, EOCs, SAT & ACT have been canceled. None of the assessments for seniors will be counted in their absence. To graduate, students will need to have required credit hours and GPA.
We will continue our community feedings through the end of the week. We will then provide information regarding meal distribution for children and families during the spring break and the two weeks of extended closures.
No state funding shall be recalled from Miami-Dade County Public Schools. This is important to ensure we deliver services, especially for the most fragile in our community. These include children with disabilities, homeless students, foster kids and migrant children.
This is my call to our community – Emergencies and crises are inconvenient and disruptive. We have entered uncharted waters. I ask for your patience, respect and compassion. We will get through this together. #MDCPSLearns #coronavirus
