The Successful Practices Network (SPN) and The School Superintendent’s Association (AASA) have selected Owensboro Public Schools as one of 25 national models of Innovative Practices. As a selected model, the SPN will collaborate with OPS to learn more about its work and highlight lessons OPS has learned to share with school and district leaders around the United States.
“We are honored to be selected as a model of innovative practices. We constantly preach tradition, innovation and excellence in our schools. We look forward to sharing our model with the rest of the country,” said Dr. Nick Brake, OPS Superintendent.
OPS will host the SPN for a site visit to witness OPS’ work first hand. The visit will include meeting with stakeholders and attending classroom lessons. Following the site visit, the SPN will produce a case study of OPS’ work to highlight challenges OPS faces, the innovative approaches OPS has implemented and the impact of that work on student learning and achievement.
“To have our case study distributed nationally by both the SPN and AASA as models and inspiration for schools and districts is something our staff and students should be extremely proud of. We continue to be a leader in education preparing our students for the careers of tomorrow,” said Brake.
The site visit is scheduled for November.
