On Monday, June 18 the Bartlesville Board of Education approved hiring Michael Harp as an Assistant Principal at Bartlesville High School. Mr. Harp has been a band director for nine years. For the last four years he has served as the Director of Bands for Carl Albert High School, a class 5A school in the Mid-Del system in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area.

Mr. Harp was recognized as the Teacher of the Year for 2017-18 at Carl Albert High School. He led a successful band program at Carl Albert, with the band earning a variety of awards including being named the Oklahoma Band Association 5A Marching Band Runner-Up State Champion in the fall of 2016. Mr. Harp received the OSSAA Band Director Award in the spring of 2017, and the OSSAA Band Directors Sweepstakes Award in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

We are excited to welcome Michael Harp as an instructional leader at Bartlesville High School for the new school year which begins in August.

The hiring of Michael Harp was prompted by Greg Tackett's acceptance of a new position as High School Principal at Metro Christian Academy in Tulsa. Mr. Tackett first came to the district as an Assistant Principal at Bartlesville High School in 2004. He left the district in 2006 but later returned to serve for several years as the Assistant Principal at Madison Middle School. For the past five years he again served as an Assistant Principal at BHS.

We appreciate Greg Tackett's years of leadership at two of our secondary schools and wish him and his family the best in their transition to Tulsa.
