Escambia County School Superintendent and School Board to hold a VIRTUAL Community Brief

Escambia County School District’s Superintendent Dr. Timothy A. Smith and the members of the Escambia County School Board kick off a community-wide strategic planning initiative at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 14.

This initiative is a joint-effort led by both Superintendent Smith and the Escambia County School Board to begin the strategic planning process. The briefing originally was planned to be in person, but the recent increase of COVID cases in the region has prompted an attempt to minimize the in-person audience. As a result, you are encouraged to tune in virtually to hear the briefing.

If you wish to attend in person, the boardroom will have seating arranged in a social distancing format. The event will be conducted in a presentation format and will not include a question/answer session. Important input from the community is needed and will be gathered in the future.
