Superintendent's Summer Reading

OCPS Reads

Through a book you can travel the world...and we want to know Where in the world is OCPS Reading?

Students, parents, and educators thank you for visiting to obtain reading lists by grade level, search for books, apps, interactive literacy websites, e-books, parent resources, and literacy events around town. Students may also access the Scholastic’s Summer Reading Challenge via this site. This challenge encourages students to read and log their minutes electronically. 

The theme this year is “Where in the World is OCPS Reading”. OCPS Social Media will be sharing the literacy message and encouraging families to have students read this summer while they hashtag and post pictures of their reading adventures using #OCPSReads. Students (over 13 years of age) and Parents (students under 13 years of age) who post pictures of their student reading using the hashtag will be eligible to win prizes from the district. Categories will include things like most creative picture, best quote, best location etc... 

 Orange County Public Schools along with several community partners have created a summer reading program to help STOP the Summer Reading Slide. Our goal is that OCPS students will read 20 million minutes this summer. Download the reading log for your students to keep track of how many minutes they read each day. These minutes can be recorded at the Scholastic's Summer Reading Challenge site below or brought to their teacher any time during the first month of school. Student can log how much time they spend reading for any reason and from any of the programs listed on this website.
