School & Program Development Priorities

OPSB has adopted a set of school and program priorities to guide its charter authorization efforts.  The priorities shared below are based on an assessment of the district’s needs and future goals and feedback from the community. These priorities were adopted by the Board in February 2018. The district will assess whether new charter school applications are aligned to the school and program priorities during the OPSB charter evaluation process.

The 2018 School & Program Development Priorities can be viewed here.
Please visit the School & Program Development Priorities page for more information
