The OCPS Social Studies curriculum follows FLDOE Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Social Studies including embedded Florida Standards (formerly known as the Common Core Standards) for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. The standards were adopted in 2014. View these standards and related activities HERE at CPALMS.

Social Studies courses utilize state-approved adopted instructional materials to teach the state standards. The Curriculum and Digital Learning Department provides a scope and sequence for instruction in social studies courses, as well as supplemental instructional resources.

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