Broken Arrow Public Schools Board of Education approved Tara Thompson as the new chief communications officer Monday night at the regular board meeting.
Thompson has more than 15 years of public relations and communications experience. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication and Master of Arts in Communications from Northeastern State University. Additionally, she has her National Accreditation in Public Relations and State of Oklahoma Superintendent’s Certification.
Thompson is returning to Broken Arrow Public Schools after an eight-year stint with Northeast Tech in Pryor, where she served as the director communications and most recently as the executive director of operations. Previously, she served as the public information officer at Broken Arrow Public Schools.
“I’m absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to return to Broken Arrow Public Schools. This is home, and I care deeply about the success of this community,” said Thompson. “Education has the power to transform lives, and it’s an honor to join the thousands of other educators in this district. From bus drivers to teachers to custodians to principals, it takes a team to educate the almost 20,000 students every day, and I am honored to once again be of service to the students, staff and patrons of my community.”
Adam J. Foreman, who previously served in the role of executive director of public relations for the past two years, was also approved in a new role as assistant director of fine arts, joining a team led by Darrin Davis, who a few months ago was named executive director of fine arts.
“My passion for fine arts is unending, and to be able to relay that love for the arts into student-focused curriculum and marketing is nothing short of a dream job,” said Foreman. “I am so honored to help lead a department that strives to show the correlation between academics and arts in creating the whole person in our student body as they prepare for secondary education and beyond.”
Foreman’s arts background is vast and includes more than two decades of service to the Broken Arrow Arts & Humanities Council which evolved into ARTSOK, Inc. Under both banners he has served many roles, including as president and vice president of the organization. Foreman has also directed and organized several community-driven musical productions, all of which raised funds for local non-profit organizations.

Broken Arrow Public Schools is participating in a summer feeding program that provides free meals to children age 18 and younger at various Broken Arrow school sites and locations. Students are required to eat on-site. USDA does not allow parents to pickup meals for children.
All meals meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines and are prepared with a number of locally-sourced ingredients.
Meals are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service. The USDA restricts adults from eating from a child’s plate, but parents/caregivers may purchase a meal for $4.50 at the school sites only. Menus are subject to change.

It’s known as the “summer slide” by experts and is far from being as exciting as it sounds. The summer slide is the result of young minds resting in idle during the three-month break from school, sometimes losing more than two months of learning.
To prevent the summer slide, Broken Arrow Public Schools is once again promoting its summer program called “Maintain the Brain,” which provides students with ongoing learning opportunities through free online learning platforms. Students do not need to sign-up to participate in this summer program.
“Research shows that high-quality summer programs make a difference in learning loss and closing educational gaps,” said Kristin Henness, the district’s executive director of teaching and learning. “Our students have shown growth using these programs throughout this year, and we want to maintain those gains over the summer. A student only needs to work on the program 20 minutes a day, 4-5 days a week to maintain their skills.”
The programs are provided free to all families by funds from the Reading Sufficiency Act and the Elementary & Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund.
All programs can be accessed through the student’s Clever account.
DID YOU KNOW?
So, let’s stop the summer slide! Will YOU help us Maintain the Brain, BA?
