We are so excited for registration for the 2020-2021 school year to begin. It is going to be wonderful to see our returning students and to meet our new students in August. Our teachers and staff cannot wait to interact with students and families after a long five months of school closure and summer break!
The staff of PCPS are working continually throughout the summer to develop specific plans for key components of re-entry to ensure the safety of our students and staff, while maintaining the integrity of teaching and learning. As you can imagine, our typical practices will change during a global pandemic. This information will be presented to our families as re-entry plans are confirmed through short, informational videos to explain the multiple layers of precautions we will implement to focus on the safety of our students, families, and community. Stay connected to the Ponca City Public Schools Facebook Page and our district website, www.pcps.us, for continual updates. In the meantime if you have specific questions or concerns, please call the Central Administration Office at 580-767-8000.
The Ponca City School District is the 20th largest district in Oklahoma, with over 5,000 students attending 11 fully accredited schools. Our schools attract the finest teachers because of the district's commitment to excellence in education, one of the highest salary schedules in the state, and our facilities.
The district is known as a leader in the state, if not the nation, for the professional development provided to the employees. The district takes pride in having 13 Nationally Board Certified teachers and 28% of teachers with advanced degrees. Ponca City's ACT scores are continually above state and national averages. Ensuring the success of each individual student is the district's primary responsibility, resulting in the district being a leader in the development and implementation of full-day early childhood programs, after school tutoring, mentoring, summer school and alternative school programs.
In addition to strong academic programs, students have many opportunities to participate in fine arts, athletics and leadership programs, encouraging personal and social development beyond the classroom. Ponca City School District's relationship with the community sets it apart from other districts. Over the past 10 years, citizens have passed over $85 million in bond issues. Our citizens are proud of our schools and are committed to making sure that our students have what they need for the 21st century.
