Tylor Chaplin and Mel FellerDel Hardaway, Rotarian of the Day, introduced the new superintendent for the Burkburnett ISD. His name is Tylor Chaplin. Here are his own words:


It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself to the Burkburnett community as the superintendent of the Burkburnett Independent School District.

I am excited to be a part of such an innovative district dedicated to preparing students for their future. I grew up in Stephenville, Texas and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Sports Studies from Tarleton State University in 1995. I have been in education for over 20 years as a teacher, coach, assistant principal, campus principal and superintendent. I have been married to my wife Anita since 1992. We have two daughters, Alexa who is a freshman in college and Cate who is a freshman at Burkburnett High School. I am passionate about the role I play in the lives of students and in the education process. I believe education is in a state of transformation that will better prepare students to be citizens in a world that does not yet exist. By developing skills such as creativity, collaboration and the ability to reason, Burkburnett graduates will enter the world with the tools necessary to be successful in their chosen field. I look forward to the strengthening relationships with students, parents, and community members in an effort to continually improve the education of the students of Burkburnett ISD.

In November 2015 the citizens of Burkburnett ISD showed their dedication to the community by investing in the future. A bond of $47.1 million was approved to renovate current facilities and construct a new 75,000 square foot elementary campus. Construction will begin in 2016 and when completed the new facilities will benefit the Burkburnett community for generations to come.

Thank you for your continued support of Burkburnett ISD.
