• Osceola schools have earned a total of 42 Golden School Awards, the highest recognition for community involvement. The Golden School Award is given annually to recognize schools with exemplary volunteer programs. The award is presented to schools that meet certain criteria, including faculty training on how to work with volunteers and program policies and procedures. The school principal must designate a school volunteer coordinator to provide leadership for the school volunteer program, and the school must have a total number of hours of volunteer service that equals or exceeds the number of students enrolled in the school.  Every elementary school in Osceola County received the award this year.

    During the 2022/2023 school year, more than 14,600 parents, senior citizens, business leaders, concerned adults, and students have donated over 200,000 hours to Osceola County schools. As society continues to increase its demand on the role of teachers and with a limitation of funds at issue, OASIS volunteers extend teachers' and staffs' professional skills and assist in the effort to meet the unique needs of each student.
