Phase I Leadership Seminar
OK-ACTS is a three-day seminar in which head superintendents and principals come together to learn from the K20 Center and from each other. The IDEALS (Inquiry, Discourse, Equity, Authenticity, Leadership, and Service) framework serves as the research base for the seminar. Attendees learn skills to help them promote authentic integration of technology and build strong professional learning communities at their schools. OK-ACTS expands leaders’ technology skills and creates a collaborative network in which participants and K20 professionals collaborate, problem-solve, and work together toward systemic change.

More than 2,500 administrators from all over Oklahoma have participated in Phase I Leadership. Upon completion, head principals and superintendents are eligible to apply for an Oklahoma Educational Technology Trust (OETT) grant which awards individual schools and/or district sites up to $40,000 of education-targeted technology (granted by OETT) and $25,000 of professional development (provided by the K20 Center and OK-ACTS). For more information, check out the OETT website at www.oett.org/grants.

Return to Leadership Seminar
This three-day professional learning seminar is designed for head superintendents and principals who have completed the OK-ACTS Phase I Leadership Seminar and want a more in-depth learning experience. The Return to Leadership Seminar explores data-driven decision making as a process for planning and providing focused professional development for their staff. The IDEALS framework shared in the Phase I Leadership Seminar continues as the research base for future learning. Attendees collect and analyze site-specific data. Once finished, attendees develop and deliver a site-specific authentic professional development activity.
