Forms are now available for those who would like to nominate an individual for the 2016 Kurt Schmoldt Teacher Appreciation Award. 

The Kurt Schmoldt Teacher Appreciation Award is a cash award presented annually to a fulltime Bartlesville Public School District teacher, coach or counselor who exemplifies the dynamic qualities of an outstanding educator and citizen. This award is not for the “best teacher,” but for one who exemplifies the finest in the profession.

Nomination forms for the 2016 Kurt Schmoldt Award are available. The forms can be filled out and then emailed to BPSD Community Relations Coordinator, Jamye Ryan, at RyanJJ@bps-ok.org. Forms can also be printed off, filled out and then returned to Ryan’s office, which is located at 1100 S. Jennings.

To be considered, all nomination forms must be submitted to Ryan by the end of the day (5:00 p.m.) on Wednesday, January 6. Nominees for the 2016 Kurt Schmoldt Award should communicate effectively and demonstrate creative and imaginative teaching on a day-to-day basis. Nominees should inspire the value of learning in students of all backgrounds and abilities to assure academic success for students.

A panel of judges will consider the following criteria in selecting a recipient for the Kurt Schmoldt Teacher Appreciation Award: the nominee’s instructional expertise, interpersonal effectiveness, total school involvement, professional development and community service activities.

The winner of the 2016 Kurt Schmolt Award will be announced during Bartlesville Public School District’s annual Teacher of the Year Ceremony. The TOY Ceremony is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, January 26, 2016 at the Fine Arts Center on the campus of Bartlesville High School.
