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.
Welcome back! The new calendar year is certain to bring thoughts of planning and preparation for the next school year. As educators, we always have to stay one step ahead and let the data guide us.
The Supreme Court of Oklahoma has spoken. Teachers will get their pay raises as scheduled.
If your school or district has a Facebook page, chances are you've encountered the dreaded negative comment. Unfortunately, allowing people to voice their displeasure with an issue is just part of the social media game. The benefits of using social media, though, far outweigh the negative.
The Immigrant Legal Resource Center recommends that all families have—and share with their children’s school—a family preparedness plan. Such a plan outlines who is responsible for the care and custody of minor children in the event of an arrest, detainment or other happening that would make parents unavailable to their children.
