Broward school officials: We’re ready for Oct. 5 opening

The spread of COVID-19 has eased, and the district is prepared to keep schools and employees safe, Superintendent Robert Runcie said.

The School Board is meeting today to decide whether to accept a proposal from Superintendent Robert Runcie to open schools Oct. 5 for elementary, K-8 and special needs schools and Oct. 12 for middle and high schools. Students have been learning at home since late March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The disease’s spread has eased and the district has prepared to keep schools and employees safe, Runcie said.

“We can’t let perfect stand in the way of good,” Runcie said. “There’s no way to guarantee we’ll have a 100% COVID-free environment.”
