    Superintendent Malcolm Thomas has announced he will be recommending a change in the District’s Reopening Plan, which will delay student and staff return for the 2020-2021 School Year.  The first day for teachers will be Monday, August 17, 2020; the first day for students will be Monday, August 24, 2020. 

     

    Superintendent Thomas has analyzed the results of the three (3) Intent to Return options for parents, noting the response for the Remote Learning or Virtual School option was twice what was expected.  The deadline for parents to select one of the three instructional options for 2020-2021 School Year was yesterday, July 20, 2020.  

     

    “The number of students participating in the Remote Learning/Virtual School option means additional training for a number of our current instructors,” states Superintendent Thomas, “pushing the student start date to August 24, 2020 is necessary to provide our educators with the professional development required for quality virtual instruction.  This also means students returning to Traditional School can improve social distancing within the classroom and school buses.”

     

    The Monday, August 24, 2020 return date for students will also mean 10-month Educational Support Employees (ESP) within the district will return to their regular work schedules on Friday, August 21, 2020.

     

    In addition, Superintendent Thomas will recommend the following edits to verbiage within the District’s Reopening Plan regarding face coverings:  Face coverings will be worn in district facilities as directed by staff and instructional leaders.  If a situation arises whereas a student, member of staff, or a visitor is not wearing, or is incapable of wearing a face covering, such individual may be assisted or guided by appropriate authorities within the district to undertake alternative, reasonable and accommodating actions to protect self and others.  

     

    “Students and staff members will wear face coverings, or face shields, when they cannot adequately socially distance,” stated Superintendent Thomas, “while no one is expected to wear face coverings for 6 to 7 hours at a time, it is particularly important to comply on school buses, in hallways and/or shared spaces such as cafeterias and libraries.  Parental support will be appreciated in order to maintain the safest learning environment possible.” 

     

    Reopening of ECSD

    Posted 7/21/20

    Superintendent Malcolm Thomas has announced the reopening plans for the School District of Escambia County, Florida.  A new school district website has been created to provide options available for parents for the 2020-2021 School Year: http://escambiaschools.org/reopening

     

    The Reopening Escambia County Schools website provides detailed information regarding the three (3) instructional options available for students and parents:  

     

    Traditional -

    This model represents a return to the school campus and the classroom where students will interact directly with their teacher(s) and classmates.  If an option is not selected in FOCUS for a student, then this will be the default selection.  The school day will follow the standard bell times and standard schedule that includes all the core classes and other subject areas.  In short, it represents a return to the traditional school environment – with several significant changes involving enhanced health and safety precautions. 

     

    Remote Learning -

    This model is designed for families who would like to maintain their connection to their enrolled school, but don’t yet feel comfortable sending their student(s) back to school in August.  Students will attend school remotely, following the standard school schedule and bell times.  The lessons, assignments and grading will be similar to traditional school. 

     

    Virtual School -

    This model is ideal for students who wish to have more control over their learning path and pace, and for whom a flexible daily schedule is important.  In this learning model, students often work on assignments in a virtual environment during non-traditional hours and maintain contact with their teacher and classmates using web-based class sessions, email, text messages and telephone calls. 

     

    Once parents have reviewed the options available, a selection must be made to choose an option which best meets their student’s needs by a deadline of Monday, July 20, 2020.  Parents and guardians will utilize their parent/student FOCUS account to choose this selection.  It is important to note that the instructional model chosen will place the student within the selected learning option for an entire (9-week) grading period.  Every effort will be made to ensure students will start the 2020-2021 school year ready for success. 

     

    “These options for our students and parents are by no means perfect,” states Superintendent Thomas, “hopefully, by providing as many educational opportunities as possible, essential instruction will move forward during such unprecedented circumstances.”   

     

    ECSD Reopening Plan Press Conference

     

    Posted 7/8/20

    The Florida Department of Education has released the Florida Value Added Model (VAM) and Fiscal Transparency Tool, a web-based tool that enables taxpayers to evaluate both the impact that teachers have on the learning growth of their students and the financial efficiency of a school or school district with other similarly situated schools and school districts. The tool identifies public schools and districts with high academic achievement based on the ratio of classroom instruction expenditures to total expenditures.

     

    The financial efficiency data can be viewed or downloaded by selecting “2018-19 Financial Transparency” from either the landing page or the help section located in the upper right-hand corner of the VAM tool. This web-based tool is best viewed with the latest version of Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome; not all web browsers are supported.
