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.
During this time when schools are cutting valuable programs and positions just to stay afloat, it's important that we do all we can to find funding solutions that could offset--even if just a little--the budget crisis.

The OPSRC is a school service organization dedicated to the development of services for public schools. We would like to clarify our stance on Senate Bill 1187 (SB 1187). SB 1187 passed out of the Oklahoma Senate last week on Thursday, March 10, with a vote of 25-20.
