Welcome to the Oklahoma Public School Resource Center (OPSRC). The OPSRC was created to provide educational support services and technical assistance to all of Oklahoma's public schools in the areas of school finance, law, technology, communications and teaching and learning. The OPSRC also provides networking and training opportunities for member schools and serves as an advocate for public education as a whole. The center offers all stakeholders accurate, current information about best practices and educational policy.

Mission & Whom We Serve

The Oklahoma Public School Resource Center provides public schools across the state the resources they need to unburden administrators, support teachers, and most importantly, engage students. Membership in the OPSRC is open to all public schools in Oklahoma. While all public schools are welcomed, we are particularly focused on meeting the needs of small schools. These schools typically lack a large central/administrative office typically found in larger schools and the technical services offered by the Center are tailored to help address the administrative challenges facing such schools.


Doesn't all this sound great?

The Oklahoma Public School Resource Center is here to help your district succeed in every way. So what are you waiting for? Click on the button below and schedule a meeting with us today!

OPSRC has teamed up with NWEA to give educators the data and resources they need to place the child at the center of the educational experience. OPSRC members are now eligible for reduced rates through NWEA.

NWEA provides research-based educational growth measures, professional training and consulting services to improve teaching and learning.

Additionally, its Growth Research Database, the most extensive collection of student growth data in the country, provides a rich source for the study of academic achievement.

Reports are available at individual, classroom, school, program and district levels. Students see their scores immediately, and teachers see detailed reports within 24 hours. Within 72 hours, principals and other administrators can access reports of aggregated data that show student growth, proficiency and norms.

NWEA Pricing is a 3-year-tiered system

  • Year 1- the district pays $4.50 per student and OPSRC pays $8.00
  • Year 2- the district pays $6.50 per student and OPSRC pays $6.00
  • Year 3- the district pays $8.50 per student and OPSRC pays $4.00

Professional Development is a requirement when purchasing MAP and MPG. Your district pays $1000 for the “Getting Started with MAP” online training.

NWEA and OPSRC will host regional training workshops representatives from your district can attend. Please contact us to set up and meeting and learn more about this subsidy.


Online Supplemental Learning

In partnership with the Arkansas Public School Resource Center (APSRC), OPSRC is now offering to member and non-member schools alike access to a robust online supplemental learning portal. This resource provides middle and high school students with a wide range of teacher-led and facilitated courses to complement their traditional classwork. In addition to general education courses, students can select from a variety of Advanced Placement, honors, credit recovery and remediation, and various electives, including foreign languages. If you have students who need advanced or specialized coursework, students who want to improve their skills in specific subjects, advanced students who need expanded educational offerings, or homebound students needing access to credit recovery options, this portal may be the answer!
