If she wins at the state level, the award will be presented in Stillwater this summer. The criteria for Athlete of the Year is based on the following: The athlete exhibits great sportsmanship and encourages teammates and opponents to always do their very best.

School-issued laptops click for Catoosa students

CATOOSA — Thanks to a district-wide technology initiative, fewer Catoosa students can claim a dog ate their homework. Launched in August 2010 at Wells Middle School, Catoosa Public Schools' One-to-One program provides a Wi-Fi-enabled Apple MacBook and charger to each of the more than 1,000 secondary students in the district. This year's junior class, which was part of the One-to-One program's roll-out as eighth graders, will be Catoosa's first graduating class to have used laptops continuously in the classroom. More from Tulsa World...

Update on A-F School Grading System

Dear Patrons:

I want to give you an update on the A-F Report Card Grading System. Last year the Oklahoma State School Boards Association and the Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration commissioned Oklahoma University and Oklahoma State University to evaluate the A-F Report Card Grading System. The research found the process does not provide reliable, valid, or useful data to parents and community members regarding school performance. The goal of OSSBA and CCOSA is to work with all state officials, Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma to develop a system of evaluating student growth and schools in a fair and meaningful manner. Full Story...
