At its February meeting, the Bartlesville Board of Education recognized ConocoPhillips for its continuing support for multiple district initiatives. The company donated $100,000, which will help support the district's elementary school summer enrichment programs, sponsor its elementary STEM program, PLTW Launch, and again buy Chromebook cases for the district's Student Computing Initiative

In 2018-19, ConocoPhillips funded Chromebook cases for devices checked out to students at Bartlesville High School. The donation will fund another round of Chromebook cases for devices that will be checked out in August to both middle school and high school students.

In addition to these latest donations, the company sponsors the annual Hands On, Minds On Math & Science Night for middle school students each November and sponsored an Energize Conference for the high school seniors. It also offers paid student internships to high school seniors in different areas of the company, provides annual support for the Bartlesville District Science Fair, and co-sponsors the annual Energy Days program for 5th graders.
