In accordance with the recommendation on April 18, 2020, by Governor Ron DeSantis and Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran, all school districts in the State of Florida will remain closed for students until the end of the 2019-2020 school year.  Instructional activities within the School District of Escambia County, Florida will continue to be implemented via the District’s Educational Continuity Plan for distance learning.  The last day for instruction for all Escambia County students will be Friday, May 22, 2020.  

 

Employees will adhere to their established work calendars for ten, eleven, and twelve-month classifications.  Employees will be paid their regular salaries through the end of the school year, as per their appropriate contract.  Employees will continue to follow their work schedules as defined by their immediate supervisors.    

 

Students will receive grades for the fourth nine-week grading period, allowing grades for the 2019-2020 school year to be completed.  The Escambia County School District will continue to provide additional assistance to parents and students by utilization of dedicated employees working remotely each school day.

“The Senior Class of 2020 will be recognized for their hard work.  Steps are being taken to reschedule graduation ceremonies, but plans have not been finalized,” stated Superintendent Malcolm Thomas, “This depends on precautionary COVID-19 restrictions being lifted.  Tentative dates in June and July have been reserved for commencement exercises.”   

 

Parents and employees are encouraged to monitor district media sources, including the district website.
