The Mid-Del School District is a school district based in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. It serves all of Midwest City and Del City, as well as a portion of Oklahoma City. . As of 2007, the school district served more than 14,500 K-12 students.[1]

The school district has grown from four original schools[2] to include 23 middle and elementary schools and three high schools at present.[3] It also includes the Mid-Del Technology Center, the only designated technology center in the state that shares a school board with a public school district.[4]

History[edit]

The school district originated as a set of schools based solely in Midwest City, which consisted of prefabricated hutments with five teachers and 125 students.[2] It originally included four schools, two of which were precursors to Sooner Elementary School and Soldier Creek Elementary School.[2] A total of 1,250 students were enrolled in the second year of the school system.[2]

The first permanent school building was dedicated in 1944, after two years of using temporary buildings.[5] It cost $314,000 and was funded through the Lanham Act and Federal Works Agency.[5] The building today houses Jarman Middle School.[5]

Oscar Rose was an early superintendent of the school district and the namesake for Midwest City's community college, Rose State.[6]
