Sanford, Fla. (March 8, 2022) – What was once as a temporary solution for COVID protection in the tax collector’s offices will now be used to help educate the children of Seminole County.
After replacing nearly 100 plexiglass windows from most tax collector offices, J.R. Kroll delivered them to Seminole County Public Schools today, giving the school district a valuable, hard-to-find resource for its schools and facilities.
“There are so many ways we can use these, not just for safety, but for a wide range of educational opportunities, like portable white boards,” says Abby Sanchez, Seminole County School Board Member. “Our teachers are going to appreciate having these to use in their classrooms.”
Even now, plexiglass is not easy to order. And finding nearly 100 custom cut plexiglass with stands is nearly impossible. In fact, during COVID, the Seminole County Public Schools facilities department made more than 500 similar stands which are still being used today.
“We continue to look for collaborative ways to work with our fellow local governments and this was an easy way to repurpose something we can not use anymore,” Kroll says. “It was remarkable how many ways Abby thought of very quickly these could be used to help our children and I’m just glad to play a small part.”
