Due to the limitations on hosting Leadership Orange sessions inside district schools, the program was not offered during the 2020-21 school year. If schools reopen to host visitors in the fall of 2021, the program will resume. As soon we know, applications will be taken for membership in Class XI of Leadership Orange. (March 31, 2021) 

Leadership Orange is your opportunity to learn about what it takes to educate 206,000 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 9th-largest school district faces as it pursues its vision to ensure every student has a promising and successful future.

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 - open only to Orange County residents. Class limit is 32. OCPS employees are ineligible.]
