PARENT-EMPOWERED EDUCATION MODEL
DESIGNED WITH THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT IN MIND
As a student-informed education model, EPIC focuses on an individualized education plan to meet each student’s unique intelligences, educational needs and learning styles.
Every student has different levels and types of intelligence. Students are not uniform products but uniquely created individuals. EPIC tests and identifies each student’s starting point, meeting them where they are educationally to maximize their potential.
Each student comes to EPIC with very specific and unique needs. Some of those needs include very practical necessities like technology and connectivity. Other needs may be more personal outreach like health accommodations, family dynamic considerations, work allowances, emotional challenges, etc.
Every student has their own unique way of learning. Though the goal is to get every student to and beyond state standards, EPIC understands that each student will take a different path to that goal.
Parents and students are empowered in the education process. The success of every student involves the collaboration between the parent, the student and the teacher.
EPIC’s staff understands the quality of a student’s education is greatly determined by the quality of their teacher. EPIC realizes that like every student, every teacher has their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, EPIC invests a great deal into training, equipping and encouraging our teachers with the tools they need and with a supportive team to help them be successful.
Each teacher averages 30-35 students, giving them the ability to focus on each student’s individual strengths and weaknesses
Every teacher is part of a team that is led by a principal
Each principal has an average team of 20-25 teachers
A principal meets one-on-one with each teacher at least an hour each month to discuss professional development and direct feedback on each student’s progress
Many teams meet together on a weekly basis to share and collaborate
“EPIC Charter Schools is serving children in ways that no other school system is doing in the state of Oklahoma. Between the one-to-one model and the blended learning centers, EPIC is delivering quality instruction tailored to the individual needs of every child.”
