Superintendent Melba Luciano Kicks Off Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge For Students
In an effort to build a consistent, year-round culture of reading throughout Osceola's school community, Superintendent Melba Luciano is challenging students to read 26 million minutes over the summer as part of Scholastic’s Summer Reading Challenge starting May 7, 2015.

"When school lets out in June each year, our students battle the 'Summer Slide' – the loss of academic skills when students are not in school," said Superintendent Luciano.  "Research has proven that when children read over the summer, they return back to school in the fall at or above the reading levels they were at the end of the school year."  Read more...

Student Assessments For Current School Year
On April 14, 2015, Governor Scott signed House Bill 7069 into law which contains widespread, immediate implications for Florida school districts regarding student assessments for this current school year. Due to the untimely passing of the legislation at this late date in the school year, a variety of different actions are being taken by school districts across the state in regards to student assessments. After collecting input from a variety of sources and careful consideration regarding this issue, Superintendent Luciano has deemed it beneficial for students and teachers to continue with Osceola's current design to administer end-of-year assessments in the 2014/2015 school year with limited exceptions.

In deciding upon Osceola’s position, the most overarching and pervasive dynamic is the issue of fairness to teachers and students. Superintendent Luciano's position on the subject can be found in a letter to staff.
