TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida’s public university system must develop a plan by month's end to allow the country’s second-largest four-year college system to reopen in the fall.

Hundreds of thousands of students were sent home in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The chancellor of the 12-campus university system said Monday that university officials must present guidelines to the board of governors at a public meeting May 28.

The guidelines will serve as a blueprint for each campus to draft individual reopening plans, which the board of governors will consider at its June meeting.
