Charter schools are tuition-free public schools of choice, but each charter school is governed independently. Unlike traditional public schools, every charter school must demonstrate success, or it will lose its charter.
The Education Foundation of Osceola County, Inc. is a not-for-profit entity organized exclusively for educational purposes. The initial mission of the Foundation included providing mini-grants to teachers for innovative classroom programs and supporting district efforts to recruit quality educators. The Foundation embarked on an additional effort in 1992. That year, the District’s strategic plan called for the establishment of a scholarship fund, which would guarantee the first year of college tuition for every graduating senior in Osceola County.
Today, the Foundation is a solid, non-profit organization led by a 40-member board of directors. The board is made up of parents, corporate executives, community leaders, and elected officials. This board has increased the programs of the Foundation to serve educators and district staff in their efforts to give Osceola County’s students the best education possible. The Education Foundation of Osceola County, Inc. partners with Charter Schools USA (CSUSA), one of the largest providers of charter school management services in the nation. CSUSA manages private and municipal charters for grades Pre-K through 12.
