Enid Public Schools and National nonprofit DonorsChoose Announce New Partnership
Enid Public Schools announced today a new partnership with the national nonprofit DonorsChoose to help teachers tap into a network of 4 million donors to support classroom projects and more seamlessly align with district strategy and operations.
Teachers in Enid Public Schools have raised $410,000 and completed over 860 projects on DonorsChoose. These projects vary from books to laptops and other tools to enhance the learning environment and support student success.
Enid Public Schools is excited to join the DonorsChoose District Partnership program.
“Enid Public Schools is fortunate to have a community that supports our commitment to ensure all students graduate from our schools college-, career-, and community-ready,” shares Enid Public Schools Superintendent Darrell Floyd. “With our partnership with DonorsChoose, we will continue to serve our students with quality instruction.”
As one of the 77 members of the DonorsChoose District Partnership Program, Enid Public Schools will be able to fully support teachers in the use of the platform, ensure safety and security, and align efforts with the district’s strategic priorities. Enid Public Schools will be able to monitor all donated materials, principals will be notified each time a project is funded, and receive early notification when there are new “match” funding opportunities.
“We're excited to have Enid Public Schools as a new member of the DonorsChoose District Partnership Program,” said Charles Best, founder and CEO of DonorsChoose. “Enid Public Schools teachers and administrators continue to work hard to make sure students succeed, so far they’ve raised $410,000 towards learning materials from donors across the country. We can't wait to see how the DonorsChoose community can support these educators even more through our partnership.”
