For some inexplicable reason, my opponent is pushing for parents to sign their children up for Florida Virtual School which takes money FROM our district to the state.
We have Brevard Virtual School. With an enrollment in BVS that student will remain within Brevard Public Schools and the transition between Virtual and on campus will be easier and the funding remains in Brevard. Encouraging FLVS pushes money out of our district in a year that it will be essential for this funding.
This is the 2nd time in a week he has pushed programs that fund the State instead of our own District. As an Economist, I feel it is imperative to the recovery of our County to keep as much of our funding local as possible during this unprecedented time.
The curriculum between the two is the same.Here is the link to sign up for the Brevard program. July 31st is the deadline to enroll.https://www.brevardschools.org/Page/127?fbclid=IwAR0qMmo50ItuLcOqsdyLpSz4PRmdC4WM3IcFvWqpxKdcL7vwkBvDq9cEXnw
Another option is homeschooling (which I did for my son). Here is a link to an article I wrote on the subject. https://www.adkins53.com/how-to-fail-at-homeschool-and-7-tips-to-succeed-instead/
No matter what you decide to do, please remember and thank our amazing teachers and School Board as well, who have done a remarkable job through all of this.
