Parent Satisfaction Survey Is Now Open!
Every year the Escambia County School District asks parents to fill out the Parent Satisfaction Survey. This survey helps the district to understand how they are doing as a district and to set goals for improvement. This is your opportunity to voice your opinions and suggestions. It is important that the district get feedback from everyone, so please fill out the survey even if you have no suggestions for improvement. We want input from every parent. If you are happy with N.B. Cook, as we hope you are, this is your opportunity to let the school district know! Please access the survey at the link below until the last day of March.

Welcome to Mr. Dale Cooey
We are saying farewell to Mr. Brown and hello to our new principal. Our superintendent needed Mr. Brown's assistance in another school within the district. We would like to welcome Mr. Dale Cooey to our staff. He will be serving as our principal for the remainder of this school year. Mr. Cooey comes to us with many years of experience as a P.E. teacher, curriculum coordinator, assistant principal, and principal. Mr. Cooey has been a principal for the last 17 years of his career. We are excited to have him as part of our staff, so please help us to make him a part of our N.B. Cook family.
