Yesterday's regularly scheduled Escambia County School Board meeting was canceled due to medical emergencies affecting two Board Members' immediate families.
One Board Member was already out of town --and the emergencies affecting two additional members would have left only two Board Members to conduct the meeting. A meeting requires a quorum, which in the case of the Escambia County School Board equals three members. It is for this reason that the meeting was called off.
This meeting will be re-scheduled for the first week in January, at which time all matters scheduled to be addressed at this month's meeting will be handled.
I am one member of a five person board.

Feedback is welcome, but because public participation is equally encouraged, appropriate language and decorum is mandatory.
