As the 2019-2020 school year officially comes to and end, all eyes are on the 2020-2021 school year that lies ahead. The Osceola School District is working to determine what learning will look like in the fall for its 69,000 students, and they want the parents to give input.
Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace, along with the school district have created a Back-To-School Task Force that is looking into how to best keep students and staff safe when school resumes on August 10, 2020.
The Task Force, which is made up of medical professionals specializing in infectious diseases, parents, teachers, and school and district administrators, will make recommendations to Superintendent Pace, who will then present a plan to the Osceola County School Board for final approval.
Without question, the safety of students and staff will be at the forefront of all decisions that are made and will be based on science, data, and guidance in alignment with the Florida Department of Education, CDC recommendations, as well as local and state public health departments.
The school is now asking parents to be a part of the process by taking a short survey that will communicate with the school district the preferred method of educating their child(ren) at the start of next school year.
Parents are asked to complete one or more survey sections that correspond to their children’s grade level for the 2020-2021 school year. The survey can be found at the following links:
