Foundation Fundraising

How do you raise money for your Foundation?

Meridian Technology Center is hosting the Blue Streak Run with several different runs for fun and competition.

They have made avaliable posters and flyers for download as well as taking it social and using a Facebook page to promote the event.

What are some other ways that you are doing to raise funds for your Foundation?


Family Night Cookout

Want a great way to encourage parent involvement in your students education? How about a family cookout?

Everyone loves food and at Meridian Technology Center they are hosting a come and go cookout for a couple of hours so that parents can come and meet the faculty and staff that are teaching their son or daughter.

The cookout doesn't have to be huge. Hamburgers and hotdogs would fit the bill nicely. What is important is that you are providing an opportunity for parent-teacher interaction and creating an environment where parents will begin to feel comfortable around the instructors and begin to develop relationships.

I can't wait to hear how it turns out and I look forward to sharing with you the results.

Innovation in Tech Prep National Award Winner

In the August 2011 newsletter of the National Association of Tech Prep Leadership (NATPL), Oklahoma Tech Prep was announced as a recipient of the Innovation in Tech Prep/Career Pathways National Award for the Tech Prep Review and Improvement Process.

This process, which was headed by ODCTE and involved 28 technology centers, 16 colleges, high schools and business partners, took place over 22 months and included over 150 hours of on-site visits and over 250 people in classroom observations and interviews.

The process did not compare consortia against each other, rather it helped consortia identify changes needed to achieve the overarching goal of Tech Prep in Oklahoma, "to increase the number of high school students in Oklahoma who complete high school with college credit." After each site visit, follow up interviews took place and the findings of the site visit teams were discussed.

Congratulations Oklahoma Tech Prep.


Online Viewbooks

We get them in the mail and you can pick them up off the rack at every technology center, the viewbook.

The inside is packed with pictures of excited kids learning CareerTech education and they list all the classes that one might be able to take. But is there something more?

How about putting your viewbook online? There are several ways to do this and we thought we would share one with you.

After you get your viewbook online, how are you sharing it. Are you using Twitter, Facebook and other social media to share? Are you including the link in your emails?

What are others doing? What are you doing?
