PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — The Palm Beach County School District may provide some relief to federal workers affected by the ongoing government shutdown.

On Wednesday evening, school board members will discuss a plan to postpone fees for Pre-Kindergarten and aftercare for furloughed parents who have children in those programs.

Once the shutdown ends, those postponed fees will be due, the School District said.
