Founding School Documents
Sovereign Community School Original Application
This link goes to a google doc .pdf of the original SCS application submitted in October 2017 that the public may download and review for posterity. A lot has changed since this document was created in the summer and fall of 2017, but it's a critical founding document that we're quite proud of.
Sovereign Community School Appeal Application
In March 2018 we submitted to OKCPS an appeal application that was an expanded and amended version of the application submitted in October 2017 - it's a hefty read at well over 250 pages including the appendices!
Sovereign Community School OKCPS Board Presentation
These are the slides we presented to the OKCPS school board at our presentation in November 2017 - they contain some outdated information, but were an important part of our application so we've included them here for posterity.
Sovereign Community School Curriculum Map Proposal
This map was originally included in the initial application but was taken out and made a stand-alone document for the appeal application. It's a hugely formative document for the school that gives a sense of our best thinking and vision for the unique curricular and content offerings of our school - as with other founding documents, some ideas and plans have changed somewhat since this proposal was created in 2017, but the overall vision for our approach to curriculum is more or less the same one seen in these pages.
OKCPS Initial Application Recommendation
In early February 2017 the OKCPS district acting superintendent and the district's charter schools director gave us this document as the 'final recommendation' and we had some big issues with the document's efficacy. The feedback was exceptionally poor and in-actionable, and contains about 500 or so words of text in response to a 200+ page document. However! We managed to muddle through to create the robust appeal application that you can download above.
