Attorneys for the state's largest teacher's union will meet with a judge via Zoom on Wednesday to ask them to delay the start of in-person classes.
At the end of July, the Florida Education Association filed a lawsuit against the governor, Florida's Department of Education, education commissioner Richard Corcoran, and others. This came after Corcoran sent out an emergency order mandating districts to present the option of in-person classes five days a week.
Some districts like Broward and Miami-Dade flouted that order and remain steadfast in starting the school year remotely.
In new court documents, the FEA argues the Department of Education's requirement violates the state constitution, saying it could lead to "severe and irreparable human consequences."
The conference is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, and is scheduled to last for 30 minutes.
