The Teen Parent Program is a voluntary program provided by Orange County Public Schools. The program is designed to meet the needs of pregnant and parenting teens. There are two program options:

Student may remain at their zoned High School

Offered in every high school in OCPS - Students who choose to remain at their zoned High school may receive childcare vouchers for free or reduced childcare services on route to their zoned school. Either OCPS bus transportation or Lynx bus passes provided for student and child. High school students can earn 0.5 credit for the Parenting Skills Course, via Orange County Virtual School.

Student may attend the BETA School program

Students may choose to attend BETA School, an alternative school with small class sizes matching the student's existing course progression, parenting classes, and ESE and ESOL services. On-site nurse for the babies is provided by OCPS; childcare is provided through our partnering agency, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Central Florida, for children from six weeks to four years of age.

Eligibility and Enrollment:

  • Childcare services will only be paid using the voucher when the teen parent is present in school
  • Students must comply with district attendance policies; having more than 10 unexcused absences may result in cancellation of services
  • Additional program policies are cited in the Teen Parent Program packet
