Florida Commissioner of Education Gerard Robinson Tours Warrington Middle School on 9-9-11
3. The District reiterated our strong position that co-enrollment funding via workforce development needs to be continued and funded fully.
4. The District discussed the need for local control of the school year calendar, in particular the need to have control over the start date so that the first semester can be completed prior to Christmas Break.
Commissioner Robinson was gracious and friendly and thanked everyone on the tour for taking time to spend the morning with him. On a somber note, Commissioner Robinson was aware of the murder of an Escambia High School Student the night before, and he offered his condolences and said he would keep that student’s family in his prayers.
