Catoosa Public Schools

 

Our community is extremely pleased with the progress in our public school program since Rick Kibbe became Superintendent for the Catoosa Public Schools in 2007.  

 

One of the greatest accomplishments for the school district was the passage of the school bond in April 2008.   The voters of Catoosa overwhelmingly passed two propositions that approved a $9.9 million bond for funding of repairs and remodeling school and for the purchase of new equipment.   In addition, a $1.2 million bond to fund transportation needs for the school district.   Projects included in the bonds include, but are not limited to, reapir or replace roofs, paint sites, upgrade approximately 100 HVAC systems, replace flooring, upgrade/repair parking lots, roads and sidewalks at all sites, replace track, complete Cherokee and Helen Paul projects, purchase 14 buses and four Suburbans, acquire security cameras, 26 mobile computer labs with 25 laptops, construct storage buildings, purchase lawn mowers and tractor.

 

Mr. Kibbe came to the Catoosa Publics schools from his position as the superintendent of Coyle.   Mr. Kibbe was successful in turning around the financial deficit of the Coyle Public Schools and within two years, Coyle enjoyed the largest funding surplus of the schools district’s history.  

 

In April 2009, Mr. Rick Kibbe was honored as the District 6 Superintendent of the Year.   Please click the link below to read the Cooperative Council Oklahoma School Administration (CCOSA) Press release dated April 13, 2009.
