    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:


    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.”

    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.

    Students who were in need of credit recovery were identified by their grade level counselor.  Teachers will be contacting students prior to the beginning of classes.

    The Escambia County School District Food Service Department wants to remind families that school meals will continue to be provided via curb-side service, until May 22, 2020.  Families should make plans now to switch to an alternative summer community feeding location.  Alternative feeding programs are currently available through a number of local organizations. 


    Families are encouraged to locate an alternative summer community feeding location by going to, and entering a home address.  This website provides a map showing feeding sites nearby.  Families without internet access can call 2-1-1 or text FOODFL to 877-877 for assistance as well.


    “Since closing schools due the pandemic, ECSD Food Service staff members have served over 157,000 meals; from muffins and yogurt, to cheeseburgers with fresh vegetables,” notes Escambia County School Superintendent Malcolm Thomas. 


    “Thanks to all of the Escambia School District Food Service employees who have provided this valuable service to our students and families during such a challenging time.  They reacted quickly to find an efficient new way to serve meals, with additional safety measures necessary to protect students, families and co-workers,” said Superintendent Thomas.
