Character Education - Essential Resources Guide

The Code of Virginia requires that each school division develop a Character Education Program.  Orange County Public Schools established a Character Education Committee which has worked diligently to review the Character Education curriculum and resources approved by the Virginia Department of Education to determine what elements to use in the OCPS Character Education Program.  The Committee then developed an Essential Resources Guide which was presented to the School Board at its August 21 meeting. 

The Committee is now seeking public input on the resources guide prior to Board approval.  If you would like to review the resources guide and submit your feedback please use the links below prior to September 30, 2023.
