Okeechobee County School District

Okeechobee is a rural county in which agriculture is the primary industry. The School Board is the largest employer. Students lack exposure to jobs and industries that require STEM skills. Many high school graduates do not pursue higher education. This grant will provide the strategies and resources to expose our students to options that are available to them while inspiring them to broaden their horizons and pursue opportunities.
