PARKLAND, FL- Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie proposed today that Broward schools reopen their doors for in-person learning on Monday, October 5.

The date is sooner than many have been expecting, yet the drop in COVID-19 cases appears to have had an impact on making the decision to get back to campus sooner rather than later.

"The criteria is trending down to a level where we feel it is safe to reopen our schools," Runcie stated on Tuesday.
