Oklahoma City Public Schools’ Strategic Plan
Over 8 months, more than 1,200 students, parents, community members and district staff embarked on “The Great Conversation” to define what student success looks like for Oklahoma City Public Schools. Through our diverse voices, interests and commitment to student improvement; our community agreed we will define what is important, and we will measure it.
In Oklahoma City, we must work together to achieve great results for all students; the movement towards student growth begins with our commitment to high expectations. We are committed to year-to-year steady progress towards our aspiration of success for all students.
The Great Commitment defines our goals and measures for student success, our promise to turn good intentions into stronger results for all students through purposeful action. The Four Pillars define the capabilities district staff and the community must develop to reach the goals in The Great Commitment. From teachers to parents and business leaders; we all have a role in turning our school system around in order to reach our community-wide goals.
Oklahoma City offers all of the culture, cuisine, attractions and amenities you’d expect in a modern metropolis. And with its rugged Western past, working stockyards and title as “Horse Show Capital of the World,” it’s rich in cowboy culture as well. From family fun to romantic retreats to outdoor adventures you won’t find anywhere else, Oklahoma City has plenty of hustle without all the hassle.
