The Okaloosa County School District is excited to announce that this year, for the first time, we will be live streaming our high school graduation programs for our deployed military families, and others who may not be able to attend graduation in person.
“During April, the month of the military child, I met with many of our local military commanders, and this idea was brought forward. Our service members sacrifice for us, and they sometimes miss their children’s milestone events. We decided we would use our technology, and bring graduation ceremonies to them live across the internet”, said Superintendent Mary Beth Jackson.
“Live streaming on a large scale, with 3 simultaneous graduations each night, required a lot of quick technical support, and our IT team quickly moved to make this a reality”, continued Jackson. “I cannot thank our military members enough for their service to us, and in this small way, we hope to close the distance between them and their families.”
Schedule and Details of Broadcasts:

There will be a senior meeting Tuesday, April 21 at 9:30am in the auditorium. Seniors will receive their cap and gown and get information about graduation, senior exams, graduation practice, etc. If you are a senior or parent of a senior, then plan to attend this very important meeting.
Baker competed in the IDEAS competition and the high school won first place and middle school won second place taking several individual awards as well.
Algebra Boot Camp was for selected Algebra 1 students and they spent all day working on an intensive review for their Algebra EOC (Which is the only EOC requiring a passing grade to graduate). The students were divided into three teams led by a squad leader(teacher) for each team. They began the day with a pep talk/information session from Zach the star of Algebra Nation. They then went through a series of three break-out sessions focusing on three major concepts tested on the Algebra EOC. They culminated the day with a team competition where they answered EOC style questions in a contest against the other teams. The RED squadron was the winner, followed closely by the GOLD squadron.
