Osceola Science Charter Elective 6th Grade Courses


Dear Parents,


Please see the information below for details on the 6th grade elective classes.


*Elective courses are scheduled for the 3rd period during the day and will start when we move into our permanent location.



Our 6th grade students have an opportunity to choose elective classes provided during the regular school day. Please review the Elective Course Description PDF that was attached to your email before making any selections. They go over the general summary of the different electives that are available. Once you review the electives with your child, choose the top four electives that interest him/her. The 1st choice being their top choice. Please only submit this form once.


Students who need additional math and ELA support, based upon FSA scores, will be automatically placed into the Math Essentials or English Essentials class and therefore may have only one, or no, elective choices. Final schedules will be released on 10/25/2019. The deadline to submit electives requests is Wednesday, October 23rd. Requests submitted after this deadline will still be processed but availability will be based on what remains after those initial requests have been placed.


We cannot guarantee students will receive their top choice so the more electives selected, the better chance they will get in one they are interested in.


If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Dag at fdag@osceolascience.org.
