Osceola School District To Utilize New Transportation Routing Software To Impact Student Safety
With the goal of ensuring the children of Osceola County are provided with the best and safest mode of school transportation, Osceola School District's Transportation Department will soon implement a new dynamic software package that will positively impact student safety.  The new Student Tracking System, to begin being piloted by regular-education high school students starting February 9, 2015, will track when and where students board and exit the bus.  All regular-education buses are now equipped with a scanner that will read students' school ID cards.  Students will swipe their cards each time they enter or exit the bus.  Beginning at the start of the 2015-2016 school year, all bus riders will be asked to swipe an ID badge. Students who forget their ID badge on a particular day will still be allowed to ride the bus to and from school. Read more...

Financial Aid Assistance Available To Help Osceola Students And Adults Reach Their Dreams Of Higher Education
There is money available for college!  Federal Student Aid, a part of the U.S. Department of Education, is the largest provider of student financial aid in the nation.  Seniors in high school and adults wanting to go back to school can get financial help to attend college by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the federal government's instrument for calculating need-based financial aid and the official document used by every college and university to determine eligibility for federal student aid.  The form must be completed by students and parents each year to apply for all types of federal, state, or college-sponsored financial aid, including grants, some scholarships, educational loans, and work programs.  The FAFSA deadline is May 1, 2015, but students are encouraged to check with the institution they will be attending for their FAFSA deadline as it may be different.  Read more...

Osceola Student's Quote Featured On U.S.A. Four-Man Bobsled For World Cup Season and World Championships
The U.S. Bobsled & Skeleton Federation (USBSF) has entered into a partnership with Classroom Champions, an international education and mentorship organization created by three-time Olympian and Olympic gold medalist Steve Mesler and Dr. Leigh Parise in Education/Social Policy. Mesler helped push Steven Holcomb to a gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Games as a member of his four-man bobsled team, breaking a 62-year gold medal drought for the U.S. team. Mesler shared his journey towards Olympic glory with classrooms across the country through video chat and videos, and the successful pilot program spurred the idea for Classroom Champions. Today, over 50 Olympians, Paralympians, and Olympic medallists mentor students in their home countries over the course of an entire school year, resulting in measured improvements in student resiliency and grit, classroom engagement, digital literacy, and interpersonal skills.
