Hello parents and students!
In the Osceola School District, we are passionate about education, learning, and the very rewarding work of ensuring that we meet each and every child where they are and partner with them for success. As we enter our seventh year of strategic planning efforts as a district, outcomes have resoundingly shown that we are "getting better at getting better" in many areas. While the last several years have been challenging for every school district, it is of critical importance here in Osceola County that we return to the basics when it comes to high-quality instruction in our classrooms. To do that, this year's strategic plan goals and activities have a renewed focus on who matters the most - our learners - and what it takes to best prepare them to be successful, future-ready graduates.
The collective presence of our over 8,000 proud Osceola School District employees must mean positive results for children and be in direct support of student learning. We are reaching tirelessly towards a shared belief that by working together we can positively influence student outcomes. We are striving for our schools to be places where there is consensus on goals, where teachers are empowered, where building cohesive teacher knowledge happens daily, and supportive leadership makes great things happen for students and teachers.
Everyone has a seat at the table as we serve our successful, future-ready graduates: engaged parents; dedicated teachers, staff, and administrators; supportive business leaders; and all community residents. While the Friday night lights will be on at our high school football fields across the district this fall, every day is "Game Day" in the Osceola School District as we provide every child, every chance, every day. Our young people deserve no less.
Thank you for your continued support of our students and schools.
Dr. Debra Pace
