Over the last three year period, Escambia County has sustained losses of over $1.6 Million in lost and damaged textbook costs.
An itemized, school by school look at the numbers and costs can be found here.
The dollar amounts are high, as are the "fees waived" amounts-while the collected amounts on these losses are very low, and this concerns me.
I have put this subject on the agenda for discussion by the board at our regular monthly board discussion workshop scheduled for This Thursday, April 15, 2010 at 3PM at the McDaniel Building downtown.
I am one member of a five person board. The opinions I express on this forum are mine only, and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of the Escambia County Staff, Administrators, Employees, or anyone else associated with Escambia County Florida. I am interested in establishing this blog as a means of additional transparency to the public, outreach to the community, and information dissemination to all who choose to look. Feedback is welcome, but because public participation is equally encouraged, appropriate language and decorum is mandatory.
