Okaloosa County Schools Among Top School Districts
in State on FSA

Message from Mary Beth Jackson, Superintendent of Schools

Okaloosa Schools is celebrating 100 years of excellence and with the release of the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA), the tradition continues.   The FSA results were released today and at first glance, the results look promising for the Okaloosa County School District.  Okaloosa Schools are among the top school districts in the state of Florida on the newly administered FSA English/Language Arts (ELA) and Math assessments.

As Superintendent, I have watched our schools persevere through and overcome the bombardment of educational changes handed down by the state of Florida over the past 3 years.  During this time, our teachers, staff, and administrators have stayed focused on what is best for students.  As a result, our students continue to be among the best in the state of Florida.

Understanding that the initial results are preliminary, I’m extremely proud of the efforts and progress of our students, teachers, staff and administrators.  Being one of the top school districts in the state of Florida does not occur by chance; rather, it occurs through purposeful action on the part of educators as well as through the support of our parents and communities.

With 100 years of excellence firmly rooted as our foundation, Okaloosa Schools continue to shine and our future is bright.  Progress not perfection, but this is really close!
