The Osceola County business community and the School District came together in 1985 to form a partnership designed to bolster the efforts of schools in creating quality education. This partnership produced The Education Foundation.

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.
