TCEC provides a long list of support to the education community to support students, faculty, and the community.
For more information about our education programs, please contact Leslie Kraich via email or call 580-652-2418, ext. 128.
TCEC provides each school within it's service territory an annual donation. This donation is based on the number of students enrolled in the school according to the state department of education.
Recommendations for use of funds includes: sponsorships, sports teams, yearbook and newsletter ads, program ads, gym ads, elementary school agendas/planner, bottled water or any other program the school deems necessary.
Gross Receipts Tax
Each year more than $1 million is contributed to schools in the Oklahoma Panaldle through the gross receipts tax collected through member bills by TCEC. The state gross receipts tax is paid by all electric cooperatives in Oklahoma based on the amount of energy sold. One advantage of being served by a cooperative is the gross receipts tax which goes directly to the school districts where the taxes is collected.
TCEC believes strongly in the power of community and the cornerstones of our communities are our schools and children. We have committed to support education and area youth in a variety of ways. Our partnership with educators in strengthening the power of community is vital to our mission. Thank you for allowing us to join you as we follow our youth’s journey to responsible adult citizens who give back to the community.
