As the second quarter of the school year approaches, Orange County Public Schools is giving families the opportunity to switch their child's instructional model.

OCPS previously promised parents and guardians a chance to change their child's educational model for the next quarter of the 2020-21 school year if desired. For the second quarter, a child currently attending school through LaunchED@Home can change to face-to-face. Similarly, children attending face-to-face can switch to LaunchED@Home if desired.

Those who wish to switch their child's instructional model must contact their school by Friday, Sept. 18, so the school can prepare for the changes. The second quarter begins Oct. 13.

OCPS digital curriculum experts also are hosting LaunchED@Home Parent Forums on Thursday, Sept. 10, and Friday, Sept. 11. The forums are designed to walk parents through what students experience during a day of LaunchED@Home. For more information, click here.
