The Chickasha Public School Foundation (CPSF) was founded more than 25 years ago as part of a collaborative vision to improve the quality of education in the Chickasha community. The education foundation is an independent community-based nonprofit that helps Chickasha Public Schools students by providing support for educational opportunities that cannot be funded through the district's budget.With a focus on creating community ownership in the success of every child, The Foundation plays a key role in supporting efforts to improve academic achievement and supporting programs for transformational change in educating our next generation.
We serve more than 2,400 students in the Oklahoma City Public School District (OKCPS). About 80 percent of our students qualify for free meals, meaning they live in homes whose family income is near or below the federal poverty standard. There is no more valuable investment in our community than creating a public education system that prepares our children for success.
The Foundation believes the future of Chickasha rests upon every child in our schools graduating with a quality education.
Because of support from our community, The Chickasha Public School Foundation has:
- $650,000 in Grants for Teachers, support going directly into the classrom and directly impacting our students.
- Seed Money to start Chicksha's 1st Robotic Program.
- Provides $2,000 annaully in scholarships to graduating Chicksha Public School Seniors.
- Significantly increased awareness of the community’s critical role in moving progress forward in Chickasha Public Schools.
