Basketball and baseball coaches named

posted May 31, 2018, 5:41 PM by Granger Meador   [ updated May 31, 2018, 5:42 PM ]

Donnie Martin has been named the new Head Varsity Girls Basketball Coach for the Bartlesville Lady Bruins. Coach Martin comes to Bartlesville from Pryor Public Schools, where he led the Lady Tigers to the state tournament in two of his three seasons including a finish this season as the runner-up in Class 5A. Austin Jarvis has been named the new Head Varsity Baseball Coach. Coach Jarvis comes to Bartlesville from Ada Public Schools, where he led the Cougars to 23 wins and a district championship this season.

Donnie Martin took over a girls basketball program in Pryor that had a 13-83 record across the previous four seasons. He guided the Lady Tigers to a 51-32 record in three seasons. When he was coaching at Inola in 2014 and 2015, Martin was selected as conference coach of the year, leading Inola to  conference championships both seasons. He was chosen as the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State Coach in 2015 and the 2018 Region Coach of the Year. Donnie’s wife, Lori, will be an assistant coach and teach advanced math at Bartlesville High School. The couple will bring their three school-age children, Chloe, Maggie, and Bo, to Bartlesville. Chloe was Pryor’s leading scorer as a sophomore this year and was selected 5A 1st team all-state by the Daily Oklahoman and 2nd team all-metro by the Tulsa World.

Austin Jarvis took over a program in Ada that had won just 14 games over the previous two seasons. During his lone season there, the Cougars earned a 23-14 record and won their first-ever Bi-District championship. Coach Jarvis had previously been the head coach at Victory Christian High School, which had been ranked No. 5 in Class 3A. In his three years at the school, the Conquerors won almost 80 games after having won seven games before his arrival. Austin is not a newcomer to Bartlesville: he played one season at Oklahoma Wesleyan University and later earned his master’s degree from the school.

Ryan Huff, Bartlesville’s Director of Athletics and Activities, stated, “We are extremely excited to have Coach Donnie Martin lead the Lady Bruins. His knowledge of the game and coaching style will be a perfect fit for next year’s team and for years to come. We welcome him, his wife Lori, and their children to Bartlesville Public Schools. Coach Jarvis is a young coach who has proven he is ready to lead a 6A program. He has had great success at Victory Christian and in Ada, and we are excited he has chosen to take over the reins of the Bartlesville baseball program.”

ConocoPhillips recognized for its support of district STEM programs

posted May 23, 2018, 2:57 PM by Granger Meador   [ updated May 23, 2018, 3:13 PM ]

ConocoPhillip Recognition
Celebrating the support of ConocoPhillips for the district's STEM programs were Chuck McCauley, Superintendent; Scott Bilger, board President; Karen Leinen, Bartlesville Community Relations, ConocoPhillips; Kevin Sitton, board member; Melissa Furnas, Talent Planning & Acquisition, ConocoPhillips; Tyler Vaclaw, board member; Mark Headley, Manager, Real Estate & Facilities Services, ConocoPhillips; David Austin, Communications, ConocoPhillips; Alison Clark, board member; Randy Herren, board member; Nikki Benson, board clerk; Rick Boswell, board Vice-President.

Mark Headley and other representatives of ConocoPhillips were recognized by the Bartlesville Board of Education at its meeting on May 21, 2018. ConocoPhillips has long supported various district initiatives, with marked support for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs in recent years.

The corporation sponsored very successful Middle School Math & Science nights for the district in November 2016 and November 2017, with plans for another great event this fall.

For 2017-18, the corporation provided $30,000 to support the district's piloting of Project Lead the Way Launch STEM modules in all of the district's kindergarten through fifth grade classrooms. This support helped provide iPads and carts for each school for that program, which provided hands-on STEM experiences in computer science this school year. These funds were separate from over $80,000 raised by a matching grant from the Bartlesville Public Schools Foundation for the pilot year of Launch.

ConocoPhillips & PLTW Launch
For 2017-18, ConocoPhillips helped fund a cart of 30 iPads for each elementary school's new Launch STEM modules
Launch iPad Cart

The corporation increased its support for 2018-19, contributing a total of $100,000 for a variety of district programs over and above its support for the Middle School Math & Science Nights. 

This will not only continue to corporation's long support of various ongoing enrichment programs but will also fund cases for 1,500 Chromebooks that will be distributed to seniors, juniors, and freshmen at Bartlesville High School for use at school and at home. (Returning sophomores will already have the devices they were issued as freshmen in August 2017.) The Chromebooks are a key part of the district's Student Computing Initiative. In recognition of this support beyond the available funding from a 2016 bond issue to purchase the Chromebooks, all 1,500 new protective cases will feature a stitched ConocoPhillips logo alongside the Bruins logo.

ConocoPhillips Cases
The 1,500 take-home Chromebooks issued to students at Bartlesville High School in 2018-19 will be in attractive always-on protective cases funded by ConocoPhillips

The 2018-19 donation will also support the second year of the PLTW Launch program in the elementary schools, offering additional biomedical and engineering modules across the elementary schools. These funds will build upon a $100,000 community fundraising effort spearheaded by the Bartlesville Public Schools Foundation.

The district is grateful to ConocoPhillips for its strong and unwavering commitment to expanding and supporting STEM education in the district and other enrichment opportunities.

Forum Stage

All four candidates for House District 10 and both candidates for House District 11 participated in the public forum on education which Bartlesville Public Schools sponsored on Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

If you were not among the 250 citizens present, you can still see and hear the candidates tackle a variety of questions about public education:
You can also listen to an audio-only recording:

After a series of questions on education topics, with each candidate given up to two minutes to respond to each question, moderator H. J. Reed instigated a lively "three words" lightning round.

House District 10 Election
Rep. Travis Dunlap is seeking re-election and will be facing Republican candidates Michael McFarland of Nowata and Judd Strom of Copan in the June 26 Republican primary. There will be a runoff primary for the Republican ticket on August 28 if needed. The winner will face Democrat Kevin Stacy in the November 6 general election.

House District 11 Election
Current Rep. Earl Sears is term-limited, so Republicans Derrel Fincher and Martin Garber will contest for that seat. Since there is no Democratic candidate, the winner of the June 26 Republican primary will represent the district in the next legislature.

Off to state
Well-wishers celebrated the district’s Special Olympics athletes early on Wednesday morning, May 16. They gathered in the Phillips Field House at Bartlesville High School for a send-off of about two dozen participants to the state games in Stillwater from May 16-19.

Bon Bennett, a coach for the multiple-state-championships Cross Country teams, introduced each athlete, using celebratory nicknames as he is known for.

The poms and band were there to support the students, who had a brief huddle after the introductions and later filed out through the Bruin blow-up mascot to their bus, with a police escort leading them through town to the games.


Administrators recognized at Chamber Gala

posted May 16, 2018, 3:42 PM by Granger Meador   [ updated May 16, 2018, 4:16 PM ]

Several current and former administrators in the Bartlesville Public Schools were recognized on Tuesday, May 15 at the Bartlesville Chamber of Commerce’s 114th Annual Gala.
 
Supt. McCauley
Superintendent Chuck McCauley was surprised to receive the Tom Shoemake Leadership Award, presented to an outstanding leader in the Bartlesville region. Recipients must exhibit the courage to make tough decisions, the confidence to stand alone, the compassion to listen to the needs of others, and do not set out to be a leader but become one by the quality of their actions and the integrity of their intent.

Supt. McCauley was recognized for his leadership in the district since he started out as a Vice-Principal at Bartlesville High School in 2001-02, rising to become Superintendent in 2016. In 2018, he became a de facto leader among superintendents statewide in the successful effort to spur the legislature to finally act to improve teacher salaries to address a statewide teacher shortage.

Ryan Huff
Ryan Huff, the district’s Director of Athletics & Activities, was recognized as one of 30 graduates of the Leadership Bartlesville XXVII program.  He participated in eight class sessions on Community Services, City Government, Healthcare, Education, Criminal Justice, Economic Development/Large Business, Small Business, Tourism and the Arts, and delivered a Capstone Presentation.
Earl Sears
Earl Sears, who worked at Central Middle School for 32 years, spending 24 years as an administrator, received the Frank Phillips Award as a citizen who contributes time, energy and talents to Bartlesville economic development efforts. He was recognized for his achievements during his earlier service on the city council and his subsequent 12 years representing House District 10 in the state legislature. Mr. Sears is term-limited, and candidates for his open seat will be at the public forum discussed on page 1.

Tri-County Tech was named Business of the Year at the event.
