Tulsa Public Schools is the destination for extraordinary educators who work with our community and families to ignite the joy of learning and prepare every student for the greatest success in college, careers and life.
Our mission is to inspire and prepare every student to love learning, achieve ambitious goals and make positive contributions to our world.
It’s official! On Monday, January 20, 2016, the TPS Board of Education unanimously approved Destination Excellence / DESTINO LA EXCELENCIA PLAN ESTRATÉGICO 2016-2020 , the district’s new five-year strategic plan.
After hundreds of hours of engagement with Tulsa teachers, families, students, community members and administrators – including many conversations about their hopes and dreams for our schools –Tulsa Public Schools’ new strategic plan is ready for its “reveal.”
“Destination Excellence” is a great title for this plan because extraordinary learning happens every day at Tulsa Public Schools, and we are committed to providing excellence for all students. We have amazing teachers, leaders and team members throughout our district.
Our journey is not complete, however. With this plan, we aim to inspire, motivate and energize the Tulsa Public Schools family to continue the journey to excellence – together – with a renewed sense of urgency and focus.
In the weeks and months ahead, TPS will work closely with the community to develop annual action plans aligned with the strategic plan, which will be shared publicly prior to the start of each school year. They will include prioritized strategies, performance targets and deadlines. We will use the action plans and our performance data to regularly measure our success, adjust our work as needed and report our progress publicly to our board of education and our community.
Our shared goal is to place every child on a pathway to success to realize his or her full potential. We are extremely grateful for your engagement and enthusiasm throughout the strategic planning process. We hope you will stay engaged in the work of public education and continue to participate actively with Tulsa Public Schools throughout the implementation of our plan.
You are essential to the success of public education in Tulsa. Exceptional public education contributes to the vitality of our children, families and community. We invite you to find your place in support of Tulsa Public Schools. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to become a part of the excellence.
Together, we will make our vision real.
