JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Thousands of Duval County students expected to attend school this academic year have yet to appear after five school days, according to the district.
The unique challenges associated with reopening schools amid COVID-19 have resulted in a number of students and families who have not connected with their schools, DCPS Spokeswoman Laureen Ricks said Thursday.
As of Wednesday, the district said nearly 9,700 students who were expected to attend classes this fall havent shown up in their respective learning format.
Some of the missing students were expected to participate in online learning and others, at a physical school.
We have about 6,800 students who havent showed up in any way shape or form, said Tracy Pierce, DCPS chief of communications.
