About NPS ExpandED

  • Expanded logo

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

     While the district has offered online courses for more than a decade, the new program provides participating students with the flexibility to complete all of their coursework outside the traditional school building or blend their learning experience by attending some classes at school. NPS ExpandED students also have the unique opportunity to participate in on-site extracurricular activities, including 6A athletic teams and world-class fine arts programs. 

    The free, online education opportunity aligns with Oklahoma Academic Standards and offers a self-paced education option for K-12 students. Highly qualified, certified teachers will provide online instruction and work closely with students and parents to customize lessons as needed.
