Welcome to the Oklahoma Public School Resource Center!
We are a new education non-profit dedicated to supporting public schools in the State of Oklahoma. Public schools in Oklahoma face a tremendous administrative burden and this burden is particularly cumbersome to smaller schools–especially rural public schools and public charter schools. Recognizing that smaller schools lack large central office staffs, the OPSRC aims to help fill this gap by providing technical services in the following five areas: finance, law, technology, teaching and learning, and communications.
Our staff will consult, train, and support public schools in these areas and will facilitate the sharing of information between public schools so that schools can share best practices and learn about new innovations from their fellow school leaders. By encouraging networking and reducing the administrative burden on public schools, the OPSRC can help schools focus on their core mission: educating students.
I hope you’ll take time to review the OPSRC’s website and contact us with any questions. We are brand new and are focused on recruiting top talent for our staff. In the coming months, we will be scheduling training opportunities and other events that we believe will be of interest to public schools so please check back often for updates.
Thank you for your interest in the OPSRC—I look forward to hearing from you and working together to support and improve public education in our great state.
If you’re spending any of your summer time to learn and develop new skills, I have some excellent news for you! We have a new free course available courtesy of Odysseyware. I had the pleasure of being part of the Odysseyware Advisory Council this past year. It was a great experience, and I was so happy to be able to share feedback from our member schools with their team.
You made it! School's out, students are gone, and while you may have vacations planned, summer PD scheduled or you're finally reading those books you've been waiting to dive into all year, don't neglect one critical item: your school's social media accounts. Summer is a great time to engage with your parents and community supporters.
We are finally starting to feel cooler temperatures with the changing of the seasons, but the Teaching & Learning team is also witnessing some extraordinary changes happening in your classrooms, with your teachers and most importantly, for your students.
Fact: Your classroom is full of barriers Every teacher faces a few “elephants” in the classroom. You might refer to them as barriers, distractions or interruptions--things that get in the way of students being fully engaged in their learning. No matter the term you use, though, they require you to reconsider how you relate to and instruct your students and how you manage your classroom.
