Typical Summer Institute/Conference Activities

OSSM INFORMATION FOR PARTICIPANTS

We are fortunate to be allowed to use the beautiful campus of the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics. Please help us care for the facilities and show our appreciation and respect to the faculty and staff for the use of the campus.


LUNCH will be served to all participants daily in the Great Hall, which is located in the Residence Hall. Service is buffet style, with hot-meal selections, a well-stocked and diverse salad bar, and dessert options; participants may select items that meet their tastes and dietary restrictions.


KEY CARDS:

  • Numbered key cards will be distributed at check in. Cards must be returned on the last day of attendance; there is a $10 fee for unreturned cards.
  • You will need your key card to enter/exit all buildings at OSSM. Please keep your key card with you at all times
  • Sensors are located at most doors. Pass the key card in front of the sensor (magnetic strip facing sensor). The sensor beeps, and a green light flashes when the door lock is released.
  • Please enter and exit the Residence Hall by the front door. Key cards will not work on side exits.
  • An alarm will sound if the side doors are opened in the Residence Hall.

Should the alarm be set off, report to the person in the Residence Hall office or call Anne Springall at 405-209-8966.


All key cards must be returned to OKA+ Schools when you check out at the end of your institute. You will be charged $10 for each card that is not returned.

OKA+ Summer Attendance/Cancellation Policy

Participation in OKA+ Schools Summer Institutes and Conferences
While it is understood that emergencies occur, outside of those incidents, failure to participate in all components for which individuals are registered, including meals and full participation in workshops and conference sessions, will cause the school to be liable for costs incurred by Oklahoma A+ Schools for those participants, unless they have canceled or advised OKA+ of partial attendance specifics by July 10. The current cost estimate, per person, is $75 per day. Actual cost will be computed upon completion.
