District Level Services Program

District Level Services Program

CCOSA LogoCCOSA strives to support our members while being mindful of the important services other Oklahoma organizations currently provide to rural and suburban school districts as well as to boards of education. Our District Level Services program offers expanded support and service to our members. 

Our goal is to support education leaders by offering exceptional services for Better Schools. With this in mind, we are excited to announce we are continuing our District Level Services Program, established a year ago, to offer school districts support and services in the following areas:

  • Consulting Services
  • Professional Learning 
  • CCOSA Quality School Framework Toolkits (in development)
  • Exclusive discounts and free services from CCOSA partners 

Districts that formerly participated in CCOSA’s Legal Assistance Program will have the option to continue membership in that program. However, to retain your current benefits and access these additional benefits, districts must join the District Level Services Program. 

1. Consulting Services 
CCOSA’s seven-member team holds 100+ years of experience in education administration, public school finance, school climate and culture, teaching and learning, communications, and education legal counselor Andrea Kunkel. As a District Level Services (DLS) member, all of your district leaders have access by phone, email, or in person to all seven experts in education leadership and communication: Dr. Pam Deering, Derald Glover, Dr. Gracie Branch, Will Parker, Andrea Kunkel, Elyse Maxwell, and Dr. Jeanene Barnett. Personalized learning opportunities for DLS members will extend beyond group professional learning sessions. In addition, we will work hard to fulfill individual district- and/or school specific consultations or professional learning sessions upon request. If provided on site, travel expenses will be covered by the district.
