Edmond Public Schools is blessed to enjoy strong relationships with scores of community partners. These partnerships allow us to provide enhanced services to our students and their families.
EPS partners with Edmond Police to provide security in our schools. Each high school and our alternative high school have a full-time School Resource Officer (SRO). In addition, we have a full-time SRO who rotates among the five middle schools and one from the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office at Summit Middle School.
Edmond Family Counseling
The EFC is a long-time partner with EPS in collaborating to identify, implement, and encourage a wide range of counseling opportunities for children, including topics ranging from confidence to depression and anxiety to family issues.
Mercy and its caring staff members have allowed us to better meet the needs of students who experience anxiety, depression, drug addiction, or suicidal ideation. Call SAM (Student Assistance by Mercy) is a 24-hour helpline that allows our students and their families to get assistance any time day or night. Call SAM is 1-855-225-2726.
EPS, the YMCA, and the City of Edmond collaborated to open the Edmond Recreation and Aquatic Center. The state-of-the-art facility features an 8-lane, 50-meter swimming pool. For the first time since the 1970s, district swimmers practice and compete in one location.
Edmond Fine Arts Institute
The Fine Arts Institute is a partner in our “Art in Schools” program which is a joint endeavor to provide art education for students in third and fourth grade at seven different elementary schools. Sites selected for this project are Title 1 schools and serve many students who do not have access to outside art enrichment experiences. In addition to funding from Edmond Public Schools and the Fine Arts Institute, grants to support this program have been received from the following:
- The Kirkpatrick Family Fund
- Oklahoma Arts Council
- Rotary Club of Edmond
- Edmond Arts & Humanities Council
