Osceola County School Board Proclaims November 2014 As Bullying Prevention Awareness Month
Students, parents, school staff, and administrators all have a role to play in preventing bullying on school campuses. As such, the Osceola County School Board has proclaimed November 2014 as Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. Throughout November, schools will be encouraging students to participate in a variety of awareness and prevention activities designed to keep Osceola schools safe.

Bullying is when physical, verbal, or emotional harm or intimidation is intentionally and repeatedly directed at a person or group of people. Sometimes it involves direct attacks such as hitting, name calling, teasing, or taunting. Sometimes it is indirect, such as spreading rumors or trying to make others reject someone. Students should feel and be safe everywhere on campus—in the cafeteria, in the library, in the rest rooms, on the bus, and on the playground. Everyone in schools in Osceola County is working together to create a climate where bullying is not acceptable or tolerated.

For more information about bullying prevention, visit www.stopbullying.gov. Individuals can call the Speakout Hotline at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477) to anonymously report anything of concern to safety and security.


Osceola School District Receives National Distinguished Service and Leadership Award For Outreach To Homeless Students
The National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth (NAEHCY) has selected the Osceola School District as the sole recipient of the prestigious 2014 NAEHCY Award for Distinguished Service and Leadership for its outstanding efforts to provide service to the homeless children, youth, and families in our community.  This national award highlights the school district's focus to ensure that every child and youth experiencing homelessness is successful in school, from early childhood through higher education.  In order to narrow the achievement gap among homeless students and permanently-housed students and to raise all students' achievement levels, the district's Families In Transition (F.I.T.) program implemented a "100,000 Books Project" to promote reading literacy over the summer of 2014.  Read more...
