It is that wonderful time of year again when we welcome our smiling students and amazing teachers back to the classroom. After a busy summer preparing, CCPS is ready for a phenomenal 2022-2023 school year!
We are CCPSProud to open the school year as an "A" District once again. CCPS is one of only five districts (3%) in Florida who have been "A" rated since 2017. This reflects the incredible work of our students, teachers, parents, administrators, and community members.
As you prepare for the new year, make sure to take some time to complete the annual Emergency Information Form. This form is available online and includes new information this year regarding health services available to students in school. Simply visit the CCPS Portal and log in as a parent (do not log in using your student’s information), then click on the FOCUS icon and follow the on-screen prompts. Completing this form early will ensure that accurate student and parent information is available in the event of an emergency.
The free lunch meal benefit offered to students during the pandemic is no longer available for the upcoming school year. Families that are or may be eligible for free or reduced-priced lunch meals, MUST complete an online meal benefit application BEFORE the start of school in order to receive assistance. Visit www.collierschools.com/MealBenefits to complete the online application by the deadline of August 9, 2022. Breakfast will continue to be available for all students at no charge during the 2022-23 school year.
As this will be my last year as superintendent, I want to say that it continues to be an honor working with our students. This year's senior class were first graders when I started as superintendent twelve years ago. I am proud of our graduation rate, academic achievements, and the continued expansion of programming across the District to ensure that all students have access to high quality instructional opportunities. I look forward to another successful school year with our #CCPSFamily!
