public schools across the state the resources they need to unburden administrators, support teachers, and most importantly, engage students. While membership in the OPSRC is open to all public schools in Oklahoma, we are particularly focused on meeting the needs of smaller schools and districts. They typically lack a large central/administrative office found in larger districts, and the services OPSRC offers are tailored to help address the administrative challenges they face.
The Teaching and Learning team is dedicated to providing quality professional development in the areas of classroom management, classroom content and leadership development. The team provides a published PD calendar as well as customized professional development topics that meet the unique needs of your school/district. Team members use their 60 years of combined educational experience in every grade level to provide PD at your site, at centralized statewide locations or at the OPSRC training center.
Our expectation is: Learn Now, Expand Today, Use Tomorrow.
The Finance team provides a range of services to meet your needs. We can help set up expenditure and income budgets for one year or over a 5 to 6-year term, provide analysis of current trends in the state education budget and help provide answers to school business questions. We train in all areas of school finance, including health care reporting, coding for various programs and references and resources for help in various areas of school business. We will also design special projects for our members upon request. Our goal is to help districts build a strong set of easily-readable financial documents to help them make informed decisions.
The Technology team provides assistance to schools with technical issues and provides training and workshops on pressing technology topics. The team is available to assist with continuity plans, eRate applications and other school and district technology decisions. Technology workshops focus on topics of interest, including iPads in the classroom, Web 2.0, The Flipped Classroom model, district websites, and iBooks Author.
The Legal staff is available to member schools as an in-house general counsel and will provide services including, but not limited to, the following: legal document creation and review, including those pertaining to personnel, students, grant applications, standards monitoring, and state/federal program compliance, and other professional services; consultations by phone, e-mail, or in-person at the school site or the OPSRC office(s); innovative and updated sharing of legal news and case briefs affecting member schools.
The goal of the Communications team is simple: we want to ensure you have the tools you need to successfully convey messages to your community. It is essential for schools to actively engage and inform parents, district stakeholders and the media, and with the right tools and preparation, you can control your message and promote transparency. We can provide training on media interviews, help with press releases and statements, help you build thorough crisis communication plans and social media policies and increase your presence on social media outlets. Have other communication needs not listed? Just let us know, and we are happy to help!
