Mission The Midwest City-Del City Public School Foundation will promote educational excellence, generate optimism and excitement among students and teachers, and inspire community ownership, commitment, confidence and pride in the Mid-Del school system.
Background The Midwest City-Del City Public Schools Foundation was organized in 1989 by a task group made up of local community leaders and education personnel. The foundation was incorporated in the same year, and over two decades has been led by a Board of Trustees that is representative of the communities services by the Mid-Del schools.

With over $400,000 dollars in grants awarded over 21 years, the foundation has encouraged innovative, creative opportunities for students in the Mid-Del school system. Grants have encouraged teachers to explore new approaches to teaching and to develop programs that stimulate thought and expand the existing curriculum.
  1. Following a listening campaign with a variety of stakeholders in the prior year, in 2011-12 the Foundation launched two new programs to support educational excellence in the Mid-Del Schools.
  2. Taking Flight is a new program initiative to develop a fourth-grade curriculum aligned with the new Common Core standards. It is a Mid-Del teacher-developed curriculum that uses math, science, reading, writing, and art to explore the theme of flight. It also takes fourth-graders from all 17 elementary schools on two educational field trips, and brings in a visiting artist (Mike Wimmer) to lead engaging sessions at each elementary school.
  3. The Homeless Student Education Fund covers education-related costs for students impacted by homelessness, and which can't be covered through federal funding, so that they can more fully participate in school life.
  4. Total contributions to support the Foundation's work increased by over a third in the past fiscal year, with business support almost doubling. Teacher support through payroll contributions increased 10 percent.

"Taking Flight" is a two-year commitment from the Mid-Del Public Schools Foundation to support our teachers and fourth-grade students as they navigate into the new territory of teaching and learning the Common Core Standards, Oklahoma's newly adopted education standards. This program was highly successful in the first two years and plans are already in place to continue the program for a third year.

We have listened to the wishes of elementary teachers to once again have visiting authors/illustrators in our district to stimulate children's love of reading as well as their interest in visual art.
We have listened to district staff express the need for professional development to give our teachers the tools and techniques needed to teach the new Common Core Standards.
Field trips and speakers will utilize partnerships with Tinker Air Force Base and Boeing and other local resources.
This two-week, cross-curricular unit developed around the theme of flight will include reading, writing, mathematics, the science of flight, and the history of aviation.
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) Adults
Description Federal money for homeless students covers some kinds of school expenses, but not others. The Mid-Del Public Schools Foundation's Homeless Student Education Fund is there to help with the latter. Mid-Del has 1,686 students who qualify as homeless. School is often their only constant, yet sports teams require shoes, uniforms and physicals; ROTC requires fees; art clubs require supplies; and the list goes on. Homeless students don't have the resources to cover even small costs. Caring teachers and staff sometimes help out of their own pockets, but the need is overwhelming.
Population Served Homeless Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Description Thanks to a grant from the Midwest City Hospital Authority, beginning in November 2013, the Foundation and the District, working together, began to implement the Botball Educational Robotics Program in all of the middle schools in the District, as well as in the S.T.E.M. or ACE programs at each of the elementary schools. Botball is an inquiry-based, learn-by-doing activity that appeals to the heart as well as the mind. Students use science, engineering, technology, math and writing skills as they engineer both the design and function of their robots, as well as document the justifications for their design decisions in this hand-on project. Sudents were able to participate in an area competition held at Norman High School the first of March 2014. Thanks to a grant from the Boeing Corporation, Botball will be implemented in all three High Schools during the 2014-2015 school year.
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years)
Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
Two factors impact our direct program funding:
1.  The Foundation continues to invest 50% of the funds it raises in our permanent endowment and long-term investments, to build sustainability for our program and ensure that the organization can provide reliable funding to the Mid-Del School District, even during challenging economic times.
2. In September 2009, the Foundation hired its first-ever staff person, and established a physical office. The Board has done this with the expectation that an executive director can substantially increase funding and allow the Foundation to make a significant contribution to the District. For a year or two, however, this means costs have gone up. However, the Foundation is committed to maintaining the program funding for those two years.
