OCPS Code of Conduct
The Vision of Orange County Public Schools is:
To be the top producer of successful students in the nation.
The code applies to all Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12, including high school and
school age students attending either a technical center in a dual-enrollment program or a community school program for high school credit.
Each OCPS student must obey district rules:
• While on school grounds
• While being transported to or from
school at public expense
• During school-sponsored events, such
as field trips, athletic functions, and
similar activities.

Schools also have authority to discipline
students for acts near or related to the school,
when a student’s conduct has a detrimental
effect on the health, safety or welfare of the
student, of other students, of the school or of
school personnel.
While students may be disciplined for infractions according to the responses outlined in this code
of conduct, be aware that there could be additional consequences through law enforcement for acts that violate the law.
OCPS employees are not responsible for supervising students who arrive on school grounds more than 30 minutes before school and 30 minutes before a school sponsored activity is scheduled to begin or students remaining on school grounds more than 30 minutes after school and 30 minutes after the school-sponsored activity ends.
