You Belong Here - Year-End Message from Superintendent Dr. Monique Felder
“You belong here.” If we have worked all year to make one thing real for every student, employee, and member of our families and community—it is that you belong here in Orange County Schools, and we appreciate you for exactly who you are. We have worked tirelessly this year as a learning community to overcome barriers and grow together. Our mission is to “engage, challenge, and inspire” each child who comes to our schools in a safe, inclusive environment where they can reach their maximum potential. You—our OCS families—have helped every step of the way, as valued partners in your child’s education.
