A Note from the Superintendent
I graduated from Indianola High School in 1993 and earned a bachelor's degree in math education and a masters in school administration from Northeastern State University. I recently earned my doctorate degree from OSU.
I am starting my 5th year as superintendent at Calvin. Previously, I worked as a math teacher at Beggs Public Schools and Savanna Public Schools. I served in several different administrative positions (elementary principal, High School Principal, athletic director, assistant superintendent) at Stringtown and Holdenville Public Schools.
My interests include deer hunting, golfing and watching the St. Louis Cardinals.
I like Calvin because the people of this community accepted me from the beginning. I spent a very short time feeling I was an outsider. I think that says a lot about the quality of the people in our community.
Mr. Karch, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
Because all children are special and have unique talents, the mission of Calvin Public School is to provide all students with a relevant education which prepares them to be productive, successful citizens and lifelong learners.
Do you know a child with a disability or suspected disability age 3 to 21 years?
Calvin Public School wants to identify children with established or suspected disabilities, regardless of the severity, and provide the most appropriate services to meet their individual needs. These children do not have to be enrolled in school, Head Start, day care, state institutions, other child care, or treatment facilities.
Help us to provide services to any child with a disability in need of special education and related services! Contact Patricia Marlow, Principal, at (405) 645-2411 (telephone) or (405) 645-1056 (FAX), or mail to: P.O. Box 127, Calvin, OK 74531.
