Parental involvement is a combination of commitment and active participation on the part of parent to the school and to the student. As parents you can ensure that your child receives the benefits from parental involvement by staying up to date on what is happening in the classroom.
Tulsa Public Schools is committed to helping your child develop the academic knowledge and critical thinking he or she needs to succeed in school and beyond. As a result, these involvement opportunities empower parents to take action. By connecting parents to school officials, community members, other parents, knowledge, and powerful allies, these opportunities build bridges and networks that support schools and sustain whole communities.
Volunteers are the life-blood of a school. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friends -- we have something you can do to enrich the life of Owen students. Tulsa Public Schools requires anyone who volunteers at school or travels on field trips with students to submit to a background check. We know you understand and appreciate the safety surrounding our children.
We welcome your helping hands. If you find that you have the time and energy to give to our great kids and staff, please take a moment and fill out the volunteer application by following the link below. Bring your completed application to the school office any school day between 7:30 and 3:30 and we will give you a call when we have approval from the Service Center.
Thank you in advance!

Activities to increase parental involvement are an ongoing part of the Title 1 program.
All parents at all grade levels should be involved in purposeful communication with the school and in the education of their own children. Together we can build broader community support for our school to the benefit of everyone.
