The Osceola County School Board strongly believes that parents should decide which academic environment best meets their students’ needs.

In order to inform parents of their expanded school choice options for the 2017-18 school year, the Osceola School District will host a Choice Fair on Oct. 27 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at The Osceola County School for the Arts to showcase the high-quality options available to students and their families in prekindergarten through grade 12.

This free event will help families make sense of the district’s school choice process, and give them the tools they need to make the right choice for their children.

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

The district’s online Choice application window for the 2017-18 school year will run from Nov. 1, 2016, through Feb. 28, 2017.
