OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - School starts in nearly three weeks and Osceola County students are now getting a look at their final grades from last school year.

Thursday was the first day parents could pick up their child’s final spring grades.

A programming error at the district level led to a long delay with report cards. The district had already issued some report cards before the glitch was discovered. So now, all high school students will get a new report card which will be available for pick up Thursday, with the exception of Zenith School and Challenger Learning Center, where staff is still working to verify grades.

“I just felt like without the report cards, it was just kind of holding him back, not knowing what his grades were,” said parent Brandie Vaughn.

Some parents said they made several trips to their child’s high school over the summer and were frustrated grades were so late.

“We’re moving to Kansas so we needed them,” said parent Melissa Brown.

The district thanked parents for their patience in a note on the district’s website and apologized for the inconvenience.  

District officials said to contact the school in advance for any senior transcript questions. The district will also leave an automated voice message with parents Thursday.
