The OCPS English Language Arts curriculum is in alignment with Florida’s Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) which were adopted by the State Board of Education on February 12, 2020. The B.E.S.T. Standards for English Language Arts will be fully implemented in the 2022-2023 school year.

View these standards and related activities at CPALMS.

ELA courses utilize state-approved adopted instructional materials to teach the state benchmarks. The Curriculum and Digital Learning Department provides a scope and sequence for ELA Instruction, as well as supplemental instructional resources.

The Orange County ELA Team works to support schools and teachers in their efforts to provide rigorous curriculum and instruction to all students and ensure that all students throughout our diverse district have equal access to a quality education.
