School choice is just that — parents choosing the academic environment that best meets their students’ needs. And the Osceola County School Board strongly believes that parents should be part of that decision.

As an informational opportunity to inform parents and students of their expanded school choice options for the 2020-2021 school year, the Osceola School District will host a Choice Fair on Nov. 7 from 5-7:30 p.m. in the Events Center at Osceola Heritage Park. The School District of Osceola County will display the options available to students and their families in kindergarten through Grade 12.

The online choice application window for the 2020-2021 school year will begin the following day, Nov. 8, and run through Feb. 3, 2020.

The district’s Charter and Educational Choices Department will be available to assist parents in completing the choice application onsite. The free event will help families process the district’s school choice process, and give them all the information needed to make the right choice for their children.

All Osceola district schools are scheduled to attend the Choice Fair, and will be able to answer questions about academic programs, extracurricular activities, student and parent services, and program admission requirements.

Questions about school choice can be answered through the district’s Charter and Educational Choices Department at 407-870-4847.
