A Word From The Superintendent

by Brad Overton 

We are down to the last two weeks of the school year. It is hard to believe that this school year is coming to a close. It looks like these last two weeks will be full of activities as several student groups and individuals will compete at the state level. This past weekend both the girls’ and boys’ track teams competed in the regional track meet. Both teams experienced great results.

A Word From The Superintendent

By Brad Overton

As school leaders, every decision we make affects children. The stakes have never been higher. This school year state budget cuts have left schools $58 million short. Statewide, more than 1,000 education employees may lose their jobs and more than 100 districts are considering fewer school days to save money. Schools expect to lose millions more for next school year.

House Report

By State Representative Todd Russ

In the final six weeks of the legislative session, House members continue to decide bills on the House floor as well as work on the state budget for the next fiscal year. As we face a $1.3 million revenue deficit for the next fiscal year, much finger-pointing has been done about why the state has such a shortfall. I’m hoping some history might help.

Working Hard for Oklahoma

By Governor Mary Fallin
 
In the moments before several hundred middle and high school students tackled challenging projects at this year’s Oklahoma Engineering Fair in February, they gathered for an opening ceremony. Speakers welcomed the students to the Science Museum of Oklahoma and told them that GE Corporation was one of the sponsors of the event. Then they were given an impromptu quiz.

A Word From The Superintendent

By Brad Overton 

The end of the school year is quickly approaching; we only have about 30 days of school remaining. This year has gone by so fast, and these next 30 days will be gone before we know it. The end of the school year is packed with events. First and foremost is state testing. These tests assess how we as a school district are doing and show us the areas within the curriculum that we need to make some improvements.
