OUR values are YOUR values
OKCPS envisions a future in which social factors are not predictive of student outcomes. The district has a responsibility to ensure equitable and fair educational opportunities for all students by allocating resources intentionally, providing diverse learning opportunities and demonstrating a commitment to equity and fairness across the school district. We value relationships and collaboration. We strive for effective and transparent communication. We believe in a laser-like focus on student success while exhibiting and nurturing a mentality of service to others.
We boast one of the highest teacher compensation packages in the entire state.
OKCPS has a starting base salary of $41,000 plus health benefits of up to $7,390.80. In addition, OKCPS also pays for the employee’s portion of Oklahoma Teachers’ Retirement adding an additional 7% to our compensation package for a total minimum of $51,260.80.
Each of our 66 Schools offer a unique culture and experience. There is most likely one that fits what you are looking for!
