OKCPS board of education votes to approve recommended Pathway to Greatness plan
After more than a year of planning, listening to the community, analyzing data, and learning; OKCPS announced the Pathway To Greatness recommendation was unanimously approved by the Board of Education.
“Throughout this process, our Board has remained focused on making decisions that would move OKCPS forward so that we can provide access to a world-class education for every student – regardless of their zip code. We are deeply grateful to our superintendent, his team and the many engaged members of our community who have invested countless hours redesigning OKCPS for the future. While we are excited to move forward, the Board is aware of concerns regarding the implementation of such a large initiative, and we are prepared to closely monitor progress and hold district leaders accountable for its success. It is time to roll up our sleeves and work together to implement the Pathway to Greatness. Our kids deserve it,” said Paula Lewis, Chair of the OKCPS Board of Education.
Superintendent McDaniel added, “Although hard decisions have been made and there is still much to do, I am more confident than ever that this work is necessary to improve the health of the entire OKCPS system and to achieve our mission of preparing every student to graduate ready to fulfill their unique purpose in a healthy, vibrant community.”
