Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran tells Broward Schools they are breaking the law by not following Gov. Ron DeSantis order to make masks optional in Schools.
Corcoran wants sanctions on Broward, Alachua counties.
The state’s board of education is holding an emergency meeting Tuesday at 4 p.m.
School officials say they met with principals Monday night to talk about mask implementation.
“If they do not have an exception, a qualifiable exception, we want to provide them a mask. We want to continue to urge them to wear a mask,” said Jeffrey Moquin, chief of staff for Broward schools.
Parents of those who don’t comply will be notified.
