Perhaps no other facet of community life presents both the challenges and the limitless possibilities found in the education of young people. Public Service Company of Oklahoma is proud to be a partner in education, particularly in grades pre-K to 12. Through workshops, initiatives and educational resources, we strive to make a difference in the lives and the learning of teachers, students and customers within the Public Service Company of Oklahoma service territory.

Flying high in the sky -- Safely
Spring breezes rocket kites skyward, but kids and adults who enjoy this timeless pastime need to remember some simple safety rules:
- Never fly a kite near power lines.
- Choose a wide-open field to fly kites.
- If a kite is caught in a power line, leave it there.
- Do not fly kites on rainy days when lightning could use the string as a conductor
to reach the ground.
- Never use wire, tinsel or any metal in kites or string -- they can conduct electricity.
