The School Services Department began the process of accepting student hardship transfer applications for the 2018-2019 school year January 17. The first round of applications was for district employees to request their child attend the school in which they work or the school within closest proximity of their work location. These applications can be submitted through February 12. Renewals for previously approved hardship requests are also being accepted at this time. Parents submitting first-time hardship requests and new employees hired for the 2018-2019 school year may submit their hardship requests starting March 20.

The School Services Department has established a Pursuing Victory with Honor Student-Athlete Advisory Council. This Council will meet bi-monthly with the Senior Director of School Services to discuss current trends and issues in high school athletics, participate in a book study, and look at student based leadership opportunities within our current schools. The first meeting kicked off in September.
The Athletic Leadership Council students from Pedro Menendez High School football, cheer, and volleyball teams participated in the first Falcon Pride Patrol. These students went to W.D. Hartley, Otis Mason, Osceola, and South Woods elementary schools to greet the young students as they arrived at school. It was a great experience had by all.
