Free Academic Resources

The Osceola School District offers many free academic resources for use at home to help students in Grades K-12 succeed. To learn about free digital resources, academic programs, tutoring assistance, and more, parents and students in all grade levels are invited to attend one of the upcoming District Academic Resource Fairs:

September 30 at Liberty High School
located at 4250 Pleasant Hill Road in Kissimmee
6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

October 9 at Kissimmee Middle School

October 14 at St. Cloud High School
located at 2000 Bulldog Lane in St. Cloud

Highlights of the events will include a welcome and overview from Superintendent Melba Luciano and School Board Chairman Tim Weisheyer, breakout sessions that parents can select from based on what best suits their student, and display booths from district departments and community youth organizations. Free child care will be provided, and light refreshments will be served.

"I continue to hear over and over again from parents, grandparents, and guardians who say that they need assistance to help their students at home with their lessons and homework," said Superintendent Melba Luciano. "These events are designed for attendees to learn what free resources are available to support the learning taking place in our Osceola classrooms. I encourage all parents and students to attend.


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. If you wish to create a Parent Portal Account, you have three options to choose from:

  1. If you do not know your child's Student ID number, you cannot register from home and you will need to visit your child's school and bring with you a valid Florida Driver's License or a government-issued photo ID.
  2. If your child's social security number is on file with the school district and you know your child's Student ID number, you can register from home. By using a valid email address, you can create and activate your account using the attached directions.
  3. If you know your child's Student ID number but your child's SSN is not on file with the district or you are not willing to provide the last four digits of your child's Social Security Number, you will need to visit the school to activate your account.

Message From The School Nurse

All medication (prescription and over the counter) must be hand-delivered by a responsible adult to the school nurse. Prescription medication must be received in its original container. Students may not bring medication to school, and we are unable to accept notes from home regarding medication administration.

    Acceleration Plan

    The academic progress of all students, including those students who exceed curriculum benchmarks, remains a high priority for the school district. Per 1002.3105, Florida Statutes, Academically Challenging Curriculum to Enhance Learning (ACCEL), the district provides a plan for acceleration decisions within the district's existing Multi-Tiered System of Supports/Response to Intervention (MTSS/RtI) framework. School level Problem Solving Teams shall review assessment data at the beginning of the school year to determine which students may benefit from acceleration options. High performing students who show the need for additional enrichment and challenging curriculum options are currently placed in the appropriate classroom with differentiated instruction. If you have further questions or would like to inquire about ACCEL options, please contact the school office. Adopted 08/07/12
