Start Smart, Return Safe
Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) announced today that in light of the viral surge in the community due to COVID-19, the 2020-2021 school year will begin on Monday, August 31, with students utilizing the District’s new and comprehensive My School Online (MSO) distance learning model. The District’s decision to open with MSO for all students is the result of several weeks of careful consideration based upon the counsel of the M-DCPS reopening workgroup comprised mostly of medical experts, meetings with county officials and continued science-focused analysis of the latest public health data, which is continually evolving. Additionally, the Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics today issued recommendations regarding the reopening of schools which support the District’s decision to delay the start of physical schooling.
“Miami-Dade County Public Schools is proud to offer our families much-needed structure and stability as we adjust to a new reality. The decision to commence the academic year on the My School Online distance learning platform is representative of our commitment to safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our students and workforce, while providing a quality education to all,” said Superintendent Alberto Carvalho.

Our students live in a hyper-connected world, spending large amounts of time communicating with family and friends through social media and doing schoolwork/homework in an online environment. Whether at home or school, our students need to know how to be safe, how to use technology appropriately and how to act responsibly when using the Internet or social media. They need to be digital citizens. We need to ensure that our students are able to navigate the digital world in a safe and ethical manner.
