MIAMI (AP) - Florida students displaced by Hurricane Irma will be able to take virtual classes so they don't fall behind.

Governor Rick Scott announced Monday that Florida Virtual School will provide remote access to educational resources to students who were displaced by the storm. FLVS will also provide access to digital educational materials to help the hardest hit school districts as they work to return to normal operations.

“As families across the state continue to recover from Hurricane Irma, we must make sure our students have access to every resource they need to remain successful in school," said Scott. "I encourage all Florida families to take advantage of this opportunity.”

Many school districts reopened Monday, with more set to reopen within the next week. Students unable to return to their home districts in the near future will be able to enroll in comparable FLVS classes and then re-enroll later at their original schools.

Individual students should visit to begin the registration process or email for special accommodations.
