Puerto Rican students, whether still on the island or resettling in Florida, can take classes through the state’s public online school for free, Gov. Rick Scott announced Thursday. The Florida Virtual School will accommodate up to 20,000 youngsters from Puerto Rico, Scott’s office said. The offer comes as the U.S. territory continues to struggle after Hurricane Irma pounded it two weeks ago, damaging homes, schools, business, roads and the island’s power grid. The virtual school offers more than 150 online courses for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
