Partners in Education is a collaborative effort between the Tulsa Metro Chamber and Tulsa Public Schools. The program's focus is to link TPS students with community resources in order to provide the knowledge and skills needed for future success. Partners and schools choose their level of involvement, which may include (but not limited to) volunteering within the school, in-kind contributions or financial assistance. To view current Partners in Education success stories or for more information visit The Tulsa Metro Chamber: Partners in Education.
-Do I have to complete the TPS Volunteer Application and TPS Volunteer Background Check forms?
Yes! This is a must both for our children’s safety and to properly reflect volunteer hours/community involvement for Edison’s district “Accountability Score”. You will need to review, sign and return a TPS Volunteer Application and TPS Volunteer Background Check. Volunteer hours can only be counted for those who have completed the two required forms. Due to form revision and legal constraints volunteers WILL need to submit these new forms each year.

-What is an “Accountability Score”?
TPS is working on the Baldridge Award for the school year 2010-2011 through application for “The Oklahoma Quality Achievement Award”which was established by The Oklahoma Quality Achievement Foundation. The award “process is a cooperative industry, academic, government initiative to advance organization performance excellence, improve competitiveness, and to provide recognition of outstanding achievements.” A number of “goals” go into a school’s achievement or“accountability score”. One goal is measured by Parent/Guardian and Community Support through the total number of Partners In Education each school has and the number of site PTA participants (volunteer hours). Your PTSA Membership benefits your child and is important to Edison! If you are volunteering in any capacity, please be sure to turn in your time so you and Edison get the credit and the benefit!
