Free Online Homework Help For Osceola County Students And Parents Is Just A Click Away
Reality is that sometimes it is hard for parents to assist their children with homework, particularly in the higher grades. It might have been a while since a parent had to worry about adding and subtracting fractions or how to answer a chemistry question. To help, the Osceola School District is offering all parents and students the use of InSync Education, a free online academic resource. Homework help is now available online at any time. Parents and students can explore thousands of academic subjects, concepts, and activities by grade level (K-12) or by subject area, including math, science, social studies, and language arts. Information can also be found to assist with test prep, accelerated learning, and college and career readiness.

Through InSync, parents and students have free access to over 1,200 activities and resources to assist with lessons and homework from kindergarten through Grade 12. Parents and students can read or listen to the information in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole. InSync Education can be accessed from any computer, tablet, or mobile device with internet connection 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

"InSync Education provides critical information about how parents can help their children learn and master particular academic skills and subjects," said Superintendent Melba Luciano. "I hope parents make use of InSync Education as they work collaboratively with teachers to support the academic success of their children."

Osceola School District To Utilize New Parent Portal
Beginning September 1, 2014, the Osceola School District will be utilizing a new FOCUS Parent Portal, a tool designed to enhance the communication and involvement of parents in their child's education. The Parent Portal will be replacing the district's Parent Internet Viewer, and will allow parents to better monitor their child's progress in school by providing Internet access to grades, attendance, discipline, academic history, graduation verification, and standardized test results in a secure password-protected environment.

With the new Parent Portal, parents will also have the ability to:
• Send an email to their child's teacher;
• View the school calendar;
• Receive messages from the Osceola School District; and
• Set up alert notifications for attendance, grades, discipline, upcoming assignments, events, and messages.

The Parent Portal will open on September 1 for parents to register for an account. Information will be sent home with students outlining the parent account registration process.
