Representatives from the 13 charter schools affiliated with Oklahoma City Public Schools presented information to the school board Monday night.
Nearly 4,800 students attended Oklahoma City charter schools last year. Officials discussed challenges, opportunities and data.
“If we don't do a better job with our students in our communities, we don't get to have the students and exist,” said Chris Brewster, superintendent of Santa Fe South.
District 1 board member Lyn Watson said she would like to see the school district improve communication, training and sharing resources.
Watson said she would like better collaboration.
“We have some stepchildren in the room and we need to blend them in to a blended family,” she said.
Watson said she would like to hear similar reports from the rest of the district's schools. District 6 board member Jay Means agreed.
“This is important,” Means said. “We should have our principals at some point come and do the same thing.”
