Science Curriculum

It is the goal of the OCPS Science Curriculum Department to see that all students are able to learn the skills and strategies of proficient problem-solvers and scientifically literate citizens. We strive to promote excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all.

Orange County curriculum was designed to assist teachers in ensuring a quality science program for all students. Task analyses were written for each Sunshine State Standard benchmark, or group of benchmarks, to define and explain them in terms of what should take place in the classroom. Additionally, this link provides a recommended Order of Instruction in science for each grade level K-8 and for high school courses.
