OkPOSI - The Project

As part of the Oklahoma Programs of Study Institute, each team will create an action plan for addressing one or more implementation barriers. Implementation barriers may address specific elements of the RPOS framework or provide an overall strategy for RPOS implementation at the team’s institution.

The Project should address the current status of your institution’s RPOS development and how participation in the Institute will enhance your implementation efforts. In your action plan, please identify one or more implementation barriers and describe the implementation challenges. 

You should specifically describe how the action plan developed during the Institute will be communicated with your partners (secondary, technology center, postsecondary), used as a “blueprint” for RPOS design and used to build capacity for RPOS implementation. 

Between the first and second session of the Institute each team will conduct a conference call with ODCTE. The conference call will be used to help facilitate the action plan and provide technical assistance.

The action plan will be presented to Institute participants during the second session and during the Oklahoma Programs of Study Summit. Action plans will be posted to okcareertech.org to provide assistance to other institutions as they develop their own plan.


Ok Programs of Study Institute - Session I

This week, nine institutions met at Meridian Technology Center during the first session of the Oklahoma Programs of Study Institute. The Institute is designed to further put research from the NRCCTE into practice at the local level and help Oklahoma institutions move from Programs of Study to Rigorous Programs of Study.

Oklahoma recently completed participation in the National Programs of Study Institute conducted by the NRCCTE. Oklahoma was one of four participants and is continuing the work completed at the national level by sharing lessons learned and helping to implement proven strategies at the local level.

During the first session, participants heard an overview of POS in Oklahoma, including information on the National Programs of Study Institute, Oklahoma Programs of Study Institute and the Oklahoma Programs of Study Summit. Discussion was also held covering the research project conducted by the ODCTE with the NRCCTE.

Participants then began to learn more about Programs of Study and the framework from which RPOS will be implemented. A marketing card was distributed and participants discussed the change in terminology from Plans of Study to Individual Career Plans. Perkins view points were presented before participants completed the Programs of Study: Local Implementation Readiness and Capacity Self-Assessment.The day ended with a conversation covering The Project that each institution will complete. 

Participants in the Institute include:
  • Caddo-Kiowa Technology Center
  • Choctaw High School
  • Claremore High School
  • Meridian Technology Center
  • Mid America Technology Center
  • Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology
  • Redlands Community College
  • Tulsa Community College
  • Tulsa Public Schools
The Institute will reconvene on November 15 at Meridian Technology Center.
