By John Dobberstein, Editor
School board members in Broken Arrow have voted to extend the contract of Broken Arrow Public Schools Supt. Chuck Perry for another 3 years.
The board voted 4-0 to approve the contract after a closed-door session Monday night during the BAPS Board of Education’s regular meeting. Board member Jerry Denton motioned for the contract’s approval and it was seconded by board member John Cockrell.
“I’m thrilled to finalize a three-year contract with the district that means so much to me,” Perry said in a statement. “From student to teacher to administer, and now the superintendent, this is the only place I want to serve. I’m humbled to have the opportunity to continue serving the students, staff and patrons of Broken Arrow Public Schools, and I’m thankful to the board for this opportunity.”
“The board is very proud of the work Chuck has done as the superintendent. We share his vision and we are looking forward to the next three years of implementing his plans for the district,” said school board President Steve Allen.
Perry was promoted to superintendent of BAPS in late 2021 after Janet Vinson opted to retire.
