About NPS ExpandED

  • NPS ExpandED logo

    The Norman Public School District is expanding educational opportunities with an innovative pilot program designed to accommodate the needs of students and families who would benefit from a virtual education solution. 

    While the district has offered online courses for more than a decade, the new program will provide an innovative opportunity for customized learning. Participating students can choose to access all courses online or blend their learning experience by attending some classes in traditional classrooms. NPS ExpandED students also have the opportunity to participate in on-site extracurricular activities such as athletic and fine arts programs. 

    The free, online education opportunity offers a self-paced education option for K-12 students. Oklahoma certified teachers provide online instruction and work closely with the student and parent to customize lessons as needed. Teachers monitor student progress weekly through FaceTime, email or phone. For more information, read through our Frequently Asked Questions or complete the readiness survey to see if the program is right for your student.
