Technology Fee 2020-21 School YearEach year students are required to pay a technology/laptop fee to use a school laptop. Students can pay this fee in person by cash or check. New this year, you can now pay this fee online with a credit card.Parents will be required to sign in or sign up with an account on this site in order to pay the fee. You cannot pay the fee if you continue as a guest.Parents may already have an account already if you have a lunch account set up through OCS. If not, you can sign up and link their sign-up with their child using the student's ID number. Once they've signed up they should look for a category on the left-hand side that says, "school fees" and they should be able to find a category that says "laptop fees" from there.Please Note: This site is the only way we can accept card payments. Otherwise, they will have to pay in person with cash or check.

Keeping Orange High School Safe - Say SomethingHere at Orange County Schools (OCS), our priority has always been the safety and well-being of our students and staff. We believe that being proactive—especially when it comes to safety and well-being—is one of the most important things we can do.
Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by Sandy Hook Promise, a national nonprofit. It empowers students and staff to submit anonymous safety concern tips through an app, website or phone call. To put it simply, this program is meant to enhance the student protections already in place.
We’ve included information about what the app is, how students can use it and why we’re adopting it in our schools below. Sherita Cobb, our director of student support services, is happy to answer additional questions. You can reach her at 919-245-4109 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
