Cover picture for the articleThe coronavirus pandemic could result in cuts of up to 25% in state funding to public schools, Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie predicted Tuesday. Runcie also said South Florida school districts could be “among the last set of schools to come online when the state decides to reopen schools,” given that the region is a hot spot for coronavirus cases. Gov. Ron DeSantis has closed all state schools for the rest of the year, so delays in Broward could mean school may not resume until after the new school year starts in August.
