Florida will temporarily revoke financial resources from two school districts for defying Republican Governor Ron DeSantis’ executive order prohibiting mask mandates in public institutions.

Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran said the state will withhold state funds from Broward and Alachua public schools, suspending compensation for a number of school officials, the Miami Herald reported Friday.

The announcement comes after Florida education officials determined Tuesday that Broward and Alachua county school districts violated state law by continuing to impose mask requirements on students and faculty.

The Florida Board of Education unanimously voted that the school officials’ actions should be probed and potentially penalized, as Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran noted they failed to comply with state law.
