About the Center for Great Public Schools

OEA's new Center for Great Public Schools (CGPS), an expansion of the work of the former Center for Teaching and Learning, is leading the way to establish OEA members as the driving force for education and professional excellence, quality teaching and learning, and innovation at every level of public education and in every policy-making arena.

Through its Institute for Professional Skills and Practice, the Center will broaden its support for members on professional practice issues. Professional development, leadership trainings, and tools and resources on school-wide collaborative professional learning; mentorship and peer assistance; educator evaluation; equity and diversity; special education and more will be provided through the center at the local and statewide level. The Institute also provides direct support for educators on licensure and advanced certification.

The Center has added focus and capacity to drive educator-led innovation in the classroom, school building and public policy arenas with the creation of OEA's Institute for Education Innovation. This will be the hub for education policy, practice and research and actively promote quality education initiatives at the local and state levels. The Institute also provides direct support for educators on licensure and advanced certification.
