WORKING TOGETHER Civic, business and education leaders developed a blueprint that has forever changed the area’s largest school district, Oklahoma City Public Schools. MAPS for Kids was a comprehensive education reform plan that raised $700 million for Oklahoma City Public Schools and surrounding school districts. In addition to building seven schools and renovating 65 others, the comprehensive plan implemented strategic academic reforms; improved student achievement; restored classroom discipline; and increased accountability with students, parents and the community.
