Certification's Mission:

Certification serves as a liaison between Orange County Public Schools and the Florida Department of Education (DOE) Certification to ensure compliance with state statutes and rules relative to educator certification.

You may contact the Certification Department at 407-317-3221 or via e-mail at certification@ocps.net.
