Workshop Wednesdays

I hope everyone is having a great end to the school year. I know you're now in a race to the finish and everyone is really busy, but I wanted to let you know about some new training I’m doing.

I hope everyone is having a great end to the school year. I know you're now in a race to the finish and everyone is really busy, but I wanted to let you know about some new training I’m doing. Starting May 4th, I will be launching Workshop Wednesdays, when between 3:20 and 4:30 during the school year, I will provide online training for teachers on all kinds of technology topics, including Google Apps, Evernote, and whatever else you suggest. I know the summer might be a little slow and most of you will be looking to take a break, but we’ll hit the ground running at the start of the next school year with workshops every Wednesday after school.

If you’d like to register for our first workshop on May 4th you can do that by going here: http://opsrc.net/events/google-apps-training.

And now that you're about to break for the summer,  I would also love to hear feedback for summer workshops. If you have ideas for preferred times, dates or training topics, email me at ben.parker@opsrc.net.

Transitioning to the NEW

Happy 2016!! As I welcome in the new year, I always begin the “cleanse”–going through closets and chunking items I no longer want or that fit, ridding the kitchen cabinets of expired food and actually wiping off the refrigerator shelves (can finally see them after all of the holiday food is out). I know for many this is a time of the 21-day “diet-cleanse,” renewed gym memberships and even the 21-day “financial cleanse.”

The Effect of Funding Shortages on Ad Valorem-Poor Districts

Funding for public schools in Oklahoma is a hot topic and for good reason. The State Department of Education (SDE) has issued a record number of emergency teacher certifications this year, and it seems each day brings a new story of teachers leaving Oklahoma for better pay in neighboring states.
