School board approves 20-21 reopening plans


(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL ) – The School Board of Manatee County officially approved School Reopening Plans for the 2020-2021 school year at a special Board on July 14. As part of that process, the Board voted to open schools for students on Monday, August 17, 2020, a week later than originally scheduled.

The Reopening plans approved by the Board include a five-day, on-campus instructional plan for parents who want their students to return to school full-time; a hybrid schedule where students mix on-campus learning with eLearning Manatee; and an option for parents who want their students to continue full-time eLearning.

Parents need to contact their schools by the end of the day on Wednesday, July 22nd, to let them know what plan they want their students to follow so the schools can set up their schedules and complete their planning.
