UPDATED Friday, October15th--Escambia County Remains in full compliance with Class size at the class level!
Members of the Escambia County School Board were told on Monday that our district is in compliance with the class level, hard cap class size count for this school year.
We were told that the situation changes on a very fluid basis, and that it looked as though we would be one student over in one class--however that situation was resolved prior to Monday's count. Reassigning the one student left us in full compliance as of Monday, October 11th at 12 Noon.
The superintendent and his staff will again brief the School Board on our class size status at our regular monthly discussion workshop this Thursday, October 14th, 3PM at the Board Room of the McDaniel Building.
Being in full compliance is good for our district in that we won't be losing any of our money to the state in fines. We may also receive additional monies from the state via other districts that did not comply.
Hopefully all of this scrambling will become unnecessary if the voters pass Amendment 8 and allow us the flexibility to use schoolwide averages!
