HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — Hillsborough County School leaders are now asking parents and students to choose an option on how they would like their kids to return to school for the 2020-2021 school year.

The Hillsborough County School District will decide which of the three models to go with, but parents choose the option their students will use to learn.

The district will be guided by which phase the state is in. For each phase, our district has created a model with several options for parents.

From those models, parents will make the decision as to which works best for their student and their family, according to the district's website.

  • Model A: Schools are fully open and operating under traditional instructional delivery.
  • Model B: Schools will be fully open but operate under a hybrid rotation of instructional delivery to include traditional, classroom teaching and remote instruction.
  • Model C: Schools will be completely shut down so that all students will be engaged in one of the remote learning options.

Now, school leaders are asking parents to fill out this Declaration of Intent to choose their option under each model.

Parents may log in by entering the student’s number and district password. This is the same username and password students use to access Edsby and Clever.

If you are the parent or guardian of multiple students, you will need to log in and complete a separate Declaration of Intent for each student, according to the school district.

The survey will close on Friday, July 10 at midnight.
