Distance Learning Work at Home

     In a 4:45 p.m. conference call today just prior to the Governor’s 5:00 press conference, Chancellor Jacob Oliva announced that, as a part of the mitigation plan for COVID-19, no students will be back in class on prek-12 campuses through at least April 15.   This means that Sumter County Schools will begin distance learning this coming Monday, March 23, implementing the district’s Instructional Continuity Plan, and utilizing the work of classroom teachers this week to extend the plan through at least April 15th.  Sumter is one of four districts beginning distance learning a week prior to the other districts because of its early spring break dates.
