Medal of Honor National Convention Letter Writing Campaign – Action Needed

As shared in the March and April SMORE newsletter communications, the Medal of Honor National Convention will be hosted in Tampa next Fall and we would love each Medal of Honor recipient to be welcomed with letters written by our students.  Please find here directions for a letter writing campaign that your teachers received in March and April.  The original date that was shared to submit student letters to Tina Stavrou   was by May 1st 2019, but we understand that this activity may work better during the month of May with testing and activity schedules and would be able to accept packages through May 31st.  We would love to have every school represented in welcoming these honorable Veterans, and thank the schools who have already submitted their letters to us.

ESY Student Letters - Action Needed

Instructional Materials Recycling Request- Summer 2019: Action Needed

We are once again reaching out to aid in the removal of out of date, out of adoption, obsolete and other materials not used or further supported in your schools. 

Please work with you plant manager to complete the “Recycling Request” and to determine the process for removal that best meets the current needs of your school.  We realize that some schools are in desperate need of removal and others may not be able to prioritize this project right now-either of those and everything in between can be supported with this work. 

Note: Please feel free to reach out to the Office for Leading and Learning to inquire about any materials in question. They are up to date on current adoption cycles as well as primary and supplementary materials.

Dual Enrollment 19-20 Course Approval - Action Needed

Schools need to complete the DE Course Approval Form to get official approval from PHSC to offer DE courses for the 19-20 school year. Below are the rolling deadlines established for our district to turn in the forms and be notified of approval/denial. Schools need to have the form turned into Samantha Del Valle 24 hours prior to the deadline in order to be considered in the window.

  • June 15th Final Pasco deadline – notified by PHSC on July 15th

Due to the PHSC accreditation guidelines, the maximum number of credits that can be offered in a 4-year period is 29 credits to ensure that a student can earn only 49% of the AA degree on the high school campus. Please review this document to see how many credits your school has offered over the last 3 years to determine your available number of credits.  If you have any questions, please contact Samantha Del Valle or Tonia Shook.
