The search for a few good men and women, a few good readers, writers and artists are in focus this week.
Escambia County School District officials will soon be forming a new task force to help close the achievement gap among the district’s students.
During a special workshop earlier this month, Escambia County Schools Superintendent Malcolm Thomas said he would be working with the school board’s new chairwoman Linda Moultrie to organize a committee of community members dedicated to “solution-finding” in the coming months.
