Osceola Students Named To All-State Band, Orchestra, and Chorus This year, 46 students representing 21 music programs in Osceola County schools have been selected into an All-State music group; this is a record high for Osceola County. The Florida Music Educators Association (FMEA) will be holding the 2014 FMEA Professional Development Clinic-Conference; Music Education – Relevance is Key from January 8-11, 2014, at the Tampa Convention Center. Accompanying the conference, selected students of FMEA members come together as a group to perform with All-State Bands, Orchestras, and Choruses. A widely-acclaimed director conducts each performing group. The selected students are given the opportunity to work with experts in the field. Rehearsals run for two or three days, and culminate in outstanding performances enjoyed by thousands of music educators and parents throughout the state.
The selection process for All-State is highly competitive, and only the finest young musicians from throughout Florida are invited to participate. Over the past six years, Osceola County has steadily increased its success rate for having students accepted into these elite performing ensembles. The following students will represent Osceola County schools this year:

2014-2015 Annual Academic Calendar:
For the 2014-15 school year, we anticipate that students will return to school on Monday, August 18, 2014.
School districts rely on the Florida Department of Education to set testing dates. School districts must have the testing dates from the state to ensure that spring break schedules don't interfere with statewide testing schedules.
When our district receives the testing schedule from the Department of Education, the recommended school calendar for 2014-15 will to go the School Board for final approval and be posted on web site.
