Leadership Orange
is your opportunity to learn about what it takes to educate 214,000 students every day. From peeks into the classroom to driving a school bus, you will gain a new appreciation for how a public school district runs and the people dedicated to the students it serves.

You will learn about the quality and breadth of opportunities afforded our children. You will also see and hear about the challenges the nation's 8th-largest school district faces as it pursues its vision to be the top producer of successful students in the nation.

Eight half-day sessions cover every facet of the school system with behind the scenes tours, hands-on demonstrations, student interaction, and quality time with the experts in their fields.

Sessions are held monthly starting in September, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at schools and facilities all across the county. Call Public Relations at 407.317.3368 for more information. [Note - not open to OCPS employees.]
