Learning by Example

On Tuesday of last week, the District’s team travelled to explore the educational curriculum at the Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) in Kansas City and Joplin High School in Joplin, Missouri. Executive Vice President Gregg Oblinger represented Simpson on the excursion. “I was impressed with the team’s ability to think outside the box,” said Mr. Oblinger. “They are focused on delivering education for the 21st century.”
