The Superintendent of Oklahoma City Public Schools, Rob Neu, revealed a 15-year plan for improving the district at last night’s board meeting.
Neu said the plan, called The Great Commitment, is the conclusion of eight months of collaboration among parents, teachers, and other community stakeholders.
"1,200 people met. And the impetus of the work was to tell us what’s most important to our children that we serve in Oklahoma City," Neu said.
The plan focuses on measuring and improving seven aspects of a student’s education. Some of the goals include increasing early literacy rates, decreasing the numbers of suspensions, and raising high school graduation rates.
Once the school board officially approves the plan—schools will start developing strategies to meet new yearly goals.
Neu said he wants those plans in place by early September.
