Osceola Business and Community Leaders To Become "Principals For A Day"
The Osceola School District is reaching out to increase community awareness and understanding of public schools' successes and challenges in a collaborative way. On December 6, over 60 business and community leaders will get a frontline view of the daily happenings in a school by serving as a “Principal for a Day.” This event will take place from 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. at public school sites throughout Osceola County, followed by a debriefing luncheon at the Transportation Department in the International Room from 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. with Superintendent Melba Luciano.
"The goal of this program is to provide area executives the opportunity to shadow a school principal for a hands-on, one-on-one learning experience for everyone involved," said Superintendent Luciano.
“Principal for a Day” offers business executives a unique opportunity to look inside the halls and classrooms of Osceola County’s public schools, to experience a little bit of the life of a school principal, and to become educated advocates for public schools. In addition, it gives both principals and business executives an opportunity to exchange ideas and insights. At the conclusion of the morning’s activities, both executives and principals will have a chance to exchange notes at the Superintendent's luncheon.

2014-2015 Annual Academic Calendar:
For the 2014-15 school year, we anticipate that students will return to school on Monday, August 18, 2014.
School districts rely on the Florida Department of Education to set testing dates. School districts must have the testing dates from the state to ensure that spring break schedules don't interfere with statewide testing schedules.
When our district receives the testing schedule from the Department of Education, the recommended school calendar for 2014-15 will to go the School Board for final approval and be posted on web site.
