A+ Essentials™

Each Oklahoma A+ school and the network as a whole are bound by a firm commitment to the A+ Essentialsframework. Years of independent research tell us that this framework supports the whole school, particularly in schools with strong principal leadership, high faculty engagement and regular OKA+ professional development. OKA+ Schools is an active, accessible and growing network. We are propelled by ongoing research and operate in a culture of evidence that keeps continuing professional development and partnerships relevant and central to the network.
