TAMPA, Fla. -- The majority of Tampa Bay area students are back in school today after a week off for spring break. They're in the process of navigating their "new normal," virtual learning.
It can be stressful for them and us as parents. We worry about how the process will work and if they'll get what they need.
ABC Action News Anchor Deiah Riley talked with Pasco County Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning. He says has this message for parents.
"Relax. It'll all get worked out."
But he also wants parents to know that online learning is mandatory.
"This is not optional! This is mandatory until at least April 15 or whenever they're allowed to go back to school."
Meanwhile, Hillsborough County's superintendent is urging families to get familiar with their e-learning platforms.
Students need to log in to "Edsby" for assignments and teacher communication and log into "Clever" for online textbooks.
This first week will help everybody get familiar with the process.
Online courses there officially begins next Monday, March 30.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact your child's school or email their teacher.
