Okmulgee High School Institute of Personalize Learning (ACE High School) kicked off the application process on Monday morning. Renee Dove, Superintendent-Elect reported, “In 45 minutes we had 47 students sign up; now we have 105 that have made application to the school. We have room for 45 more. It is now up and running and we have a consultant coming on site to do an assessment of the curriculum we have and to see the direction we want to go and so that they can work with us in preparing that.”
She also told the Okmulgee Board of Education that she met with the State Department Support Team on Friday while they were here for reading sufficiency.
Dove said, “We talked with them about our ACE High School. They stated that this is exactly the school Oklahoma’s State School Superintendent; Joy Hofmeister is looking for since we’ve partnered with OSUIT and Green Country Vo-Tech. They asked would we be opposed to being the shining star school district for this personalized learning and opening of the school. I told them I was quite certain the school board would be alright with them using us as an example for that. We should be hearing back from her and working with her in the near future.”
Dove further announced that, “The Wellness Coalition has planned a huge party for our juniors and seniors this weekend after the prom party. It should be an exciting and fun time. There will be more information to come next month.
