Message from the Director

Fellow educators,

This month, the K20 Center will be hosting our 26th Annual Innovative Learning Institute (ILI) at the Embassy Suites in Norman. Hundreds of educators from across Oklahoma will come together to not only share best practices and the latest research, but also to empower and challenge each other and the organizations we represent to renew education and focus on innovation.  This ILI honors not only the perseverance through the educational challenges of the past several years but also the great work of educators “Making it Click” for improved educational outcomes for all students. The bonds between our schools, communities, and stakeholders prepare us for positive change and a bright future for Oklahoma education.

Our mission at K20 is to advance leadership and learning focused on authentic experiences, diversity, educational resources, technology integration, college and career readiness, and community and university connections that innovate and transform education. Together, we will collaborate to strengthen our mission to improve learning and provide research-based strategies and resources.  We thank our grant funders, community leaders and educational partners for your continued support and commitment to improvement to build strong communities with thriving schools.  We appreciate your dedication to the students of Oklahoma and your passion, expertise, and engagement as we celebrate successes and continue to learn together.  Best wishes for the remainder of the school year!

Sincerely,

Leslie Williams, Ph.D. 
Director
