Students At Neptune Middle School Get Champion Connection
America’s winter athletes inspired the nation during the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. Luckily for some Osceola County students, the excitement didn't end with the closing ceremonies. Classroom Champions and a group of dedicated Olympian and Paralympian Athlete Mentors have taken an active role in education, allowing students to now experience the Olympics throughout the school year in a whole new way.  Students at Neptune Middle School in Osceola County are getting in on the experience by being matched for the year with Olympic Triple Jump Gold Medalist Christian Taylor.  The school is one of only 45 across the country selected for this experience. Students at Neptune Middle have already begun to interact with Taylor via the internet as they discuss goal setting, fair play, and random acts of kindness, and will be participating in a live chat with him in December.

Two Principals In Osceola County Selected For Commissioner's Leadership Academy
Nadia Winston, Principal of Westside K-8, and Nate Fancher, Principal of St. Cloud High School, have been selected for the Commissioner's Leadership Academy, a year-long job-embedded professional learning opportunity from the Florida Department of Education and the Council for Educational Change. Both Osceola principals will be part of the 100-plus cadre of Florida's best principals to attend the Academy, which is designed to deepen their skills for improving instruction. 

The objective of the Academy is to enhance participants' strengths and leadership, continue their professional growth, and enable them to build capacity to support their colleagues at the district and/or state levels. Through the Academy, participants deepen their knowledge and skills in identifying high-quality instruction, along with the professional development necessary to support teachers' own learning.  The school leaders will also enhance their skills in providing targeted feedback for teacher growth.

“I am extremely proud that these two outstanding principals have been selected for positions in which they can share their experience and expertise with their peers in the district and across the state,” said Melba Luciano, Superintendent of the Osceola School District.  "This selection speaks to their commitment to creating school cultures where teaching excellence is thriving and where students are achieving."

All costs associated with the Commissioner's Leadership Academy are covered under a legislative appropriation for principal professional development.
