The situation is not as serious as it is in Hillsborough County, where people are still trying to figure out what course schedule is like. But Hillsborough Classroom Teachers Association executive director Stephanie Baxter-Jenkins said she anticipated problems could arise there, in time.
“It’s not easy to do both,” says Baxter-Jenkins. “We want it to take place under very limited circumstances. But I don’t think that’s what will happen. ”

Meanwhile, Pasco County schools are trying to keep concurrent instruction to a minimum, district spokesman Steve Hegarty said. He added, if possible, the district adopted new technology to make it more accessible.
It is called Swivl and is being used mainly in engineering-career classes. Supervisor Lori Romano said the district tested the system, using multiple microphones and cameras that track teachers with GPS tracking, and found it simple to use, with the ability to communicate easily with all both students.
Pasco has purchased 237 of them for career-technical teachers, and another 70 for teachers of International Baccalaureate, Advanced and Cambridge. So far, says Romano, teachers have largely welcomed it.
That is not available at Pinellas.
McCrary, whose son studies at Countryside High, said she believes Pinellas officials have been lazy settling by allowing concurrent teaching, rather than trying other approaches. At first, she said, it bothers her.
But she decided not to get too angry, especially with the people inside her son’s school.
“The government has caused this disarray,” she said. “I don’t think parents should blame teachers or administrators. … Everyone’s plate is full. ”
A 31-year-old high school teacher in Ocala was arrested Friday on charges of having sex with a student living at her home.
Ocala police said Nick Elder, an assistant teacher at Vanguard High School, was arrested for having sex with a minor against the law. Initially the police identified Gia as a teacher.
According to the Ocala police statement of the arrest, an anonymous complaint sent to the Department of Children and Families earlier this month said Elder was engaged in inappropriate activity of two students at Vanguard School.
According to the police, DCF informed the school and the Elder had been given leave.
A detective spoke to a 17-year-old girl, she said she met the Elder on Tinder and ended a relationship with him, the affidavit stated. The girl said she left home in June and moved in with the Elder, who owns a one-bedroom apartment, according to officials.
The teenager said she wasn’t forced to have sex with the Elder but felt obligated because he kept asking her and she didn’t pay the rent for him, according to the affidavit.
She also said that the Elder provided drugs and alcohol several times, according to police.
Elder said he thought the 18-year-old girl was because of her on Tinder but admitted that he had sex with her after he knew her exact age, according to police.
He said he never gave drugs but added, “I won’t lie, I smoked (marijuana) with her,” according to the affidavit.
