Our vision is "to be the top producer of successful students in the nation"
Orange County Public Schools is making its citizens proud. The district won the national Broad Prize for Urban Education in October 2014 for strong academic performance and for closing achievement gaps. They were presented the Florida Governor’s Sterling Award in November 2014 for exceptional operational efficiency.
In light of the district’s academic success and fiscal responsibility, voters overwhelming approved two 2014 ballot referendums. An extension of a half-cent sales tax for a 10-year period passed in August. Collections will pay to complete the district’s school construction/renovation program and upgrade technology infrastructure at schools. Within a few years, all public schools in Orange County will be 21st century facilities. In November 2014, voters approved an extension of a one-mill property tax for an additional four years. This tax pays for arts and athletics programs, teaching positions, and school activities.
The district is successful in large part because of strong community support, from volunteers, business partners, or voters! Thank you.
