Italian Program Continued Partnership

Colonel Daniele Mastroberti, representing the Consulate General of Italy in Miami, was recognized at the February 22, 2021, School Board meeting in appreciation of his work toward the renewal of the partnership and funding for the Italian program in the Okaloosa County School District through 2023.

The renewal of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Consulate General of Italy in Miami and the School Board of Okaloosa County was approved by the Board in June. “Tonight, we celebrate our continued partnership which is approved through 2023 and allows students at Bluewater Elementary School, Ruckel Middle School, and Niceville High School to participate in Italian courses. The program funds teacher salaries and resources and provides ongoing support for the Italian teachers. The Italian program is an asset to our District’s World Languages curriculum,” said Superintendent of Schools, Marcus Chambers.

Colonel Daniele Mastroberti is the Italian Senior National Representative, Italian Training Supervisor, and Commander of the Italian F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Pilot Program at Eglin Air Force Base.
