LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — Starting Monday, Leon County students will begin phase one of the county's academic learning plan by working on online packets that teachers and administrators put together.

Superintendent Rocky Hanna is urging students to re-engage and complete their packets during this time outside the classroom.

Students who are not able to go access the material online can coordinate with their schools to receive a physical copy.

Hanna is telling students this is not the time to slack off, as their grade-level promotion will depend on how they do with the distance learning LCS has put in place.

"I also need to be clear with our students," Hanna said. "Summer has not started, school is still in session. Now it's going to look a little different, but school is still in session and you need to see it to the finish line, this fourth nine weeks."

LCS is working also to accommodate their student with special needs during this time.

Since most will be inside doing their work, Hanna also discussed a virtual spirit week for students to get out of the house and enjoy recreational time outside.
