Hooray for Osceola School District's math scores

Congratulations to our client, the Osceola School District, for having the most improved middle school math scores on the 2010-2011 Arkansas Benchmark Exams. The University of Arkansas Department of Education Reform recognized OSD for its achievement during last week's "Using Technology to Improve Student Achievement" conference. 

Superintendent Michael Cox
The award highlights a major turn-around that's been occurring in the school district over the past couple of years. Not too long ago, after all, Osceola School District was on the state's list of school districts in fiscal distress as well as recognized as one of Arkansas's school districts most in need of improvement. 

New leadership and continued dedication by very committed teachers and parents are breathing fresh, new life into the Osceola schools as well as the entire Osceola community.

After working with school district personnel for several months, we feel sure that Superintendent Michael Cox would be the first to say it's not the award but the much-improved performance of Osceola students that makes him happiest.


But the recognition's not bad either!
