CKTC students and staff adjust to life of online classes and meetings

Although shops and classrooms are empty, learning is still taking place at Caddo Kiowa Technology Center. The staff has been busy over the past couple of weeks converting their curricula to online platforms after Oklahoma State Superintendent Hofmeister ordered schools to close.

Students and teachers will use Schoology, Google Classroom, email, Facebook Live and Zoom, etc. to connect with staff and patrons.

Superintendent Tony Hancock reported that staff was already familiar with using a variety of platforms for doing business and has been quite impressed with everyone’s commitment to making continued construction and services possible.

The staff at CKTC are also participating in virtual staff meetings to keep up-to-date on the situation.

Currently, staff working from home during the April shelter-in-place decree.

Local businesses are encouraged to reach out to CKTC’s Business and Industry Services representatives for assistance and resources.

With classes resuming online Monday, April 6, students should stay in contact with their instructors.

What’s more, CKTC wants students to know that staff is still available to them during this time – particularly counselors if they need assistance, as well as the financial aid coordinator.

People are also encouraged to watch our webpage and social media for updates.

On Friday, February 28, 2020, students enrolled in the Southwestern Oklahoma State University/Caddo Kiowa Technology Center Physical Therapist Assistant program learned about Amtryke, a therapeutic tricycle for people with limited abilities.  As of part of their training that day, the students constructed nine Amtrykes and presented one of them to a child from Chickasha.  The remaining eight trykes will be given away at the 2020 Trykes N Treads Car Show on March 28-29 in Lawton, Oklahoma (an event sponsored by the Mountain Metro Chapter of AMBUCS). One Amtryke that was built will be given to an ARMY Veteran.

The training also provided an opportunity for some of the PTA students to meet members of the Mountain Metro Chapter of AMBUCS who provided scholarships to three of the PTA students attending classes at Caddo Kiowa Technology Center in Fort Cobb, Oklahoma.

CKTC accepting applications for Criminal Justice program

Caddo Kiowa Technology Center recently announced that it will reopen its Criminal Justice program. Officially launching in fall 2020, the program will focus primarily on high school juniors and seniors.

“CKTC has a strong history of helping its students to leverage their career goals to impact the economy positively,” said Superintendent Tony Hancock. “The new Criminal Justice program is another excellent way for our students to meet their goals and serve the public good.”

Students in the Criminal Justice program will receive hands-on training through a variety of mock simulations in interviewing techniques, security assessments and investigations. These simulations will give students applicable experience that will assist them in excelling in graduate school and future jobs.

Hancock says that the decision to reopen the program came from extensive surveys of partner school students and numerous discussions with law enforcement agencies, corrections facilities and our tribal partners.  “Without question, there is a workforce need in our district.  Students between 18 and 21 years of age cannot carry a gun, but there are several workforce opportunities with our industry partners.  Unarmed security, corrections officers, jailers, and dispatch are needs within our district.  Students also have the opportunity to continue their education at regional colleges and universities.  The goal of the Criminal Justice program is to focus on developing future leaders, and to provide our students with opportunities to enter the workforce in both the private and public sector and to prepare them to continue their education.”

While arrangements are being made for the new classroom and lab, administrators at CKTC are currently seeking the right applicant to join the CKTC team and head up the program.

Conserving Energy saves CKTC a bundle

Caddo Kiowa Technology Center conserves energy, receives rebate Photo
PSO Business Rebates Coordinators Mike Kernan and Kerry Rowland present Jamie Pittman, Facility and Maintenance Administrative Assistant and David Darnell, Facility and Maintenance Director with a rebate check for $8,514.49.

Caddo Kiowa Technology Center conserves energy each year by participating in the Public Service of Oklahoma‘s Peak Performers program. Peak Performers work with PSO to voluntarily reduce their energy use during times of high demand.  PSO has more than 230 businesses, schools, churches and cities statewide participating in the Peak Performers program.

Facility and Maintenance Director David Darnell reported that CKTC established a baseline for utility costs in FY2016, and has saved well over $30,000 to date. For its commitment to the energy program, David Darnell and Jamie Pittman, Facility and Maintenance Administrative Assistant recently accepted an $8,514.49 rebate for the center.

Darnell said a crucial part of CKTC’s success is the diligence of the staff and everyone doing their part.

“One of the key factors in our energy-saving efforts is that we shut off our air conditioners during high energy times,” said David Darnell. “After we get a peak notification from PSO, we set our units to turn off during that time.”

Darnell also reported that staff works diligently to make sure lights in unused meeting areas and offices are turned off. Another area of concentration is saving energy by making sure things like appliances and non-essential office equipment are also unplugged. With 13 buildings, an active business and seminar center and 14 programs with shops up and running, these efforts prove critical in saving energy and costs.

The amount each business gets back is based on the average kilowatts saved over all the peak events. This year CKTC received $1,000 more than last year.

The rebate, along with money saved by being more energy-efficient, goes into CKTC’s general fund. Staff and administrators are looking into more practices to continue improving their services to the district.
