Oklahoma's Promise

Attention 8th grade Parents;

This is the year to sign your child up for Oklahoma Promise or also known as OLAP. There are forms in the Middle School Office

Oklahoma's Promise is a scholarship program that pays tuition at the state's public colleges and universities for qualifying students in low to middle income families. Originally started in 1996 and called the Oklahoma Higher Learning Access Program, Oklahoma's Promise benefits tens of thousands of Oklahoma students each year. Here are some frequently asked questions on the Oklahoma's Promise scholarship program:

Only 8th, 9th and 10th-grade students who are Oklahoma residents can apply for Oklahoma's Promise, and the program is restricted to families with a total income of $50,000 or less at the time the student applies. Total income includes that listed on the federal income tax return as well as income from untaxed sources such as child support, public assistance and Social Security.

Oklahoma's Promise requires students to take 17 units of specific college-preparation courses in high school. The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education has a list online of courses to take. Students also must make a cumulative 2.5 GPA or better in those 17 units, as well as overall in high school

Tdap Booster Required

If your child is entering the 7th grade they will need the Tdap Booster to start school.

The Tdap is a 3 in one shot Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (whooping Cough).

You can get the Tdap at the McClain County Heath department very Wednesday.

Please bring a updated shot record to the Middle School Office.
