Due to Missed Classroom Time FL Schools are Becoming Year round

Last week, it was announced that Florida schools are rethinking how to educate students in 2021-22 school year. Many students have fallen behind due missed class time caused by COVID-19. Flordia schools will be switching to year-round schooling, or a balanced calendar schedule, its lesser-known but more accurate name for the 2021-2022 school year. In short, this option extends the academic calendar, shortens the summer break, and builds in regular intersessions for remediation, enrichment, and accelerated programs.
Year-round schools have been touted for reducing summer learning loss and improving teacher and student morale. But itโ€™s proven unpopular too, for its disruption to family and communitiesโ€™ routines, which are closely intertwined with the traditional school calendar.
