Project ECHO continues to monitor the COVID-19 and its impact on our communities and is aware that many, if not most, Unified School Districts have cancelled their classes or moved to on-line instruction. ECHO is also aware of that Governor Newsom has recommended the cancellation of school through the end of this academic year.
At this time the Business Plan Competition has been transitioned to a virtual competition which will occur in June.
Currently enrolled schools and clubs may choose to participate in the on-line competition. The due date for written plans will be extended from April 10-May 15. Teams will also be required to present their business plans to a panel of judges, with their slide decks, utilizing a video conference platform. More information will be shared in the near future.
We understand that teachers and their students will have questions regarding the new format, and as this is new territory for Project ECHO, we hope you’ll be patient as we determine the new competition. We are very open to hearing your comments, questions and suggestions and hope you will use the form below to submit your feedback.
Project ECHO continues to keep those who have been affected by the virus, including those who care for the ill, in our thoughts.
