Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) is starting the Social Studies adoption process for the 2023-2024 school year and beyond.

OCPS is seeking approximately fifteen parent volunteers to take part in the review process. Reviewers will evaluate materials based on the curricular needs of the students and teachers throughout OCPS and not solely the school to which they are affiliated. The selection process involves attending virtual publisher presentations, taking time to review the resources, and making recommendations based upon a rubric. The materials will be reviewed in January and February of 2023 with final selections occurring the week of March 6.
