Joint Military Council

The Joint Military Council for Education Excellence was established as a partnership between the Escambia County School District and Naval Air Station Pensacola in the Spring of 2020. The council exists to facilitate necessary changes in policies and procedures that directly impact educational services for the children of service members in Escambia County, Florida. Its mission is: Improving educational services and communication between the Escambia County School District and military families.

The Military Council convenes quarterly to address topics of mutual interest and to solicit input from community stakeholders, including military families.
