At the January school board meeting, Phillips 66 was recognized for its support for two district initiatives. The company funded a $64,000 grant for support spaces at each school to help students who have difficulty regulating their behavior. Children who have suffered traumatic experiences sometimes respond with disruptive and defiant behavior when asked to comply with routine classroom procedures. This disrupts both their learning and that of other students.

The grant will equip spaces at each site with regulation/de-escalation materials, appropriate technology and furniture, and fund corresponding staff professional development to better meet the needs of such students, providing them with opportunities to learn to regulate their behavior and remain in school.

Phillips 66 also provided $3,350 to refresh radio handsets used by site personnel for operational and safety procedures as part of its continued interest in and support for student and staff safety.

The board members recognized Phillips 66 representatives Ann Oglesby, Vice President, Technology and Jenny Brown, Bartlesville Community Engagement, for their help and support with these latest district initiatives.
