The Vision of Orange County Public Schools is: To be the top producer of successful students in the nation.

With this vision in mind, the Orange County school system has developed the Code of Student Conduct to help students, parents, and school personnel understand the guidelines for maintaining a safe and orderly learning environment. Each school develops its own rules and expectations for student conduct based on the district wide Code of Student Conduct. 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.



All students must carry their I.D. card at all times during school hours and at all school-sponsored activities. Student I.D. is required for use of computers in the Media Center, all school related activities, ticket purchase, cafeteria food purchase, hall passes, etc.
