The School Choice and Dove Public Charter Schools at Oklahoman
The University of Arkansas Professor’s article was published at Oklahoman during the week of National School Choice Week. The article is the summary of Dr. Maranto’s observation during his visits to our high school campuses. "Yet charter schools remain controversial. Critics say traditional public schools already succeed, while supporters say that letting parents pick public charter schools helps kids. What if both sides are right? What if traditional public schools succeed with traditional kids, but have trouble teaching disadvantaged kids? What if school choice can help some of those kids? That occurred to me recently when I visited Dove Science Academy's high schools in inner-city Tulsa and Oklahoma City." You may reach to the article from the following link:
Regional Food Bank Brings “Food for Kids” School Pantry Program to Dove
DOVE-OKC and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma have partnered to bring the "Food for Kids" school pantry program to Dove. This program provides Dove Science Academy with fully-stocked food pantry on the school grounds. The program provides middle and high school students with food for after school and on the weekends. The pantry is for Dove students only, and is not open to the public.
The pantry has a variety of items, including canned fruits and vegetables, soups, juice, pasta, granola bars, canned spaghetti, ravioli, and more! New items are ordered each month.
Once a student is signed up for the program through a Dove teacher, administrator, or counselor, that student may visit the pantry at school at any time. Students in the program are given the opportunity to select their food items privately at least once per week, usually on Fridays.
It is our goal at Dove to expand this program as much as possible! If you are interested in the Food for Kids program, please do not hesitate to contact your student’s teacher, or you may contact the coordinator directly at email@example.com or 405-541-8325.
