Issue With 2013-2014 High School Report Cards
Unfortunately, the district has discovered a computer programming error affecting final grades that appear on report cards that have already been issued for the 2013-2014 school year.  The errors that have been discovered are through no fault of the teachers, who all turned in their grades on time. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, and we are working diligently to correct the programming error.  If students or parents haven’t yet picked up their final report cards, please hold off on doing so.  If you have picked up your report card, a new one will be available.  As soon as the issue has been resolved and the report cards printed, another call will be made to student homes informing you of the availability of the report cards.

We recognize that accuracy of grades is extremely important.  As such, we want to ensure that all final grades are correct.  Again, we apologize for this inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.

Osceola School District's Prekindergarten Registration Begins
Osceola School District's prekindergarten registration has begun for the 2014-2015 school year. As spaces are limited and fill up quickly, parents are now encouraged to register for an appointment as soon as possible by logging on to the school district's website at osceola.k12.fl.us/depts/prek. A registration link can be found in the center of the page. Parents can choose between a half-day free instructional program for their child or a full-day program in some locations for a fee.

The Osceola School District's prekindergarten program is a dynamic learning environment that prepares four-year-old children to be successful in kindergarten. This success is achieved by the use of research-based literacy and math programs. Loving and safe learning environments are enriched by the use of computers and qualified, experienced instructors in every classroom. The fun, academically-enriched, and socially-interactive learning atmosphere helps each child reach their highest potential.

To qualify, students must live in Osceola County and be four years old by September 1, 2014. Transportation is not provided. Further information about the district's prekindergarten program may be obtained by calling 407-870-4911 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday.
