Governor Ron DeSantis announced a plan on Thursday to reopen schools in the fall at full capacity.

In a plan outlined by the Florida Department of Education, it is stated that by August — the traditional start of the academic year in Florida — the Governor wants to have campuses reopen at full capacity for students to learn in a safe environment.

The reopening plan of K-12 schools would occur in three steps:


  • Step 1: In June, open up K-12 campuses for youth activities and summer camps.
  • Step 2: Then in July, campuses expand capacities further and allow for summer recovery instruction.
  • Step 3: By August, campuses will open up at full capacity for the traditional start of the academic year.

College campuses will also reopen in three steps and at full capacity by the fall:

  • Step 1: State colleges, technical colleges, and universities are generally virtual during Summer A and C semesters.  However, first responders and some CTE programs can resume in person.
  • Step 2: During the Summer B semester, state colleges and technical colleges can open for in-person learning. State universities can continue virtually if they have already decided for Summer B.
  • Step 3: By the Fall Semester, state colleges, technical colleges, and universities will open at full capacity for the traditional start of the academic year.
