OPSRC Appoints Teaching and Learning Director

The Oklahoma Public School Resource Center (OPSRC) has named Carole Kelley as its new director of teaching and learning.

Oklahoma City, OK—The Oklahoma Public School Resource Center (OPSRC) has named Carole Kelley as its new director of teaching and learning. She will join the nonprofit organization in August and will be responsible for providing partner schools a range of instructional tools, strategies, and professional development to address their individual needs.

Kelley has more than twenty-five years of educational experience, most recently as president and chief executive officer of E.D. Consortium, an educational consulting firm that provides professional development, strategies and advice to both Washington, D.C. charter schools and Oklahoma City inner-city turnaround schools.

Before that, she was integral in the founding and continued success of Harding Charter Preparatory High School in Oklahoma City as both director of student development and later, head of school.  She also worked in Putnam City Schools as a teacher and curriculum leader.

“We are extremely pleased to be adding Carole to our team, and I know her years of experience in various disciplines will provide our partner schools a wealth of knowledge and expert guidance in creating and sustaining engaging and successful learning environments,” said OPSRC Executive Director Brent Bushey.

In addition to her consulting and training roles, Kelley will be conducting extensive research and analysis on attributes of high quality public school and distance learning curricula so that successful strategies can be replicated.

“I am excited about the opportunity to work with public schools across Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Public School Resource Center will be a great support team for administrators and teachers across the state, and I look forward to working together to give Oklahoma’s students the best education possible,” said Kelley.

The OPSRC is a nonprofit educational organization created in January 2014 to provide support to rural public and charter schools across the state of Oklahoma. The center offers resources in several key areas including finance, technology, teaching and learning, communications and legal. OPSRC also works to expand networking opportunities among schools and advocates on behalf of public schools for issues that benefit and support a well-rounded, quality public education system.
