District message on alleged embezzlement from booster club

The former president of the Mustang High School football booster club, The Touchdown Club, has been charged in Canadian County District Court with one count of embezzlement. Raymond Craig Davis Jr., 48, has been charged with fraudulently appropriating approximately $10,000 belonging to the Touchdown Club. 

“We are saddened to inform our patrons that an individual, whom we entrusted with leading the Touchdown Club, is believed to have mishandled funds,” said Deputy Superintendent Charles Bradley. 

Mustang Public Schools has been working for two years on sanctioning all of the district’s booster clubs. Originally, the booster clubs operated as independent entities with no school oversight. The sanctioning process has moved them under the district umbrella where the Board of Education can request records and help with the record keeping process. 

Now that the booster clubs are sanctioned, the district has implemented a procedure of choosing three for an independent audit of their financial records each year. During this process, independent auditors contracted by the district and Mustang Schools financial staff found thousands of dollars not accounted for in the Touchdown Club’s accounts. MPS contacted the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office to continue the investigation with a forensic auditor. 

Although Davis has been charged, the investigation continues to ensure no one else was involved. The district will continue to cooperate with the investigation until it reaches a conclusion. 

Bradley said he is disappointed that a parent entrusted with a program to benefit kids could have allegedly mishandled and embezzled funds. 

“It’s not the school district this individual is accused of stealing from, it’s the kids,” he said. “The athletes and the parents gave of their time and talents to raise money earmarked to go back into the program and back to the kids. It’s inconceivable to me that a parent could violate the trust of other parents and then take away resources the athletes themselves worked for.”  

Bradley is thankful Mustang Public Schools started the booster club sanctioning process during the 2015-2016 school year. 

“The sanctioning process has given the district a layer of protection that we didn’t have before,” he said. “It was helpful in this instance and we are thankful for the support from the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office.” 
 

Security tops board meeting; new plan in place to triple armed security

After a long discussion, the Mustang Board of Education voted to increase armed security around the district at Monday’s regular meeting. MPS currently has two school resource officers (SROs) on the south side of the district through the Mustang Police Department and two Canadian County Sheriff’s deputies on the north side. 

Charles Bradley, deputy superintendent, presented three options to the board. A modified version of the second option was chosen which adds a third CCSO deputy, plus six additional security personnel from a third party private security group. The board compromised after a request by Board President Chad Fulton, and in addition to the third deputy and private security officers, the motion ordered the district to add its own head of security to work with all three agencies and provide a point of contact and someone to coordinate coverage. 
 

Standard & Poor's upgrades district's bond rating for second time in two years

Mustang Public Schools has reached a new rank in the upper echelon of school finance with a second increase in the district’s bond rating in the last two years. Standard & Poor's, a nationally recognized credit rating organization, upgraded the district's bond rating from AA- negative to "AA- rating with a stable outlook” in 2016. After reviewing the district’s financial stability and economic outlook plan in the spring, Standard & Poor’s upgraded the bond rating in May to AA. 

Zack Robinson, the district’s financial advisor through BOK Financial Securities, said the rating change will have a positive impact that will translate directly to taxpayers. Robinson said he believed there were only two school districts in Oklahoma that have a better rating than Mustang Public Schools after the upgrade.   

Webb one of two Teachers of the Year for Mustang High School

Mark WebbOne of Mustang High School’s two Teachers of the Year, Mark Webb, is a familiar face around the district and on social media. Webb, who is serving as president of the Mustang Education Association, was a district leader for both union and non union members alike while the tide turned for public education as teachers watched three revenue measures fail before choosing to take a stand at the Capitol for two weeks. Before, during and after the walk-out, Webb was there, making nightly video announcements, dispelling misconceptions, working with Superintendent Dr. Sean McDaniel and providing a calm voice during a turbulent time. 

When it was announced before Christmas that he was one of 14 Teachers of the Year for Mustang Schools, Webb, who teaches geology and astronomy, was shocked. 

“I was like, ‘I can’t be Teacher of the Year,’” he said. “All the people around me, they’ve been doing this forever. It’s the Tom Garners and Clay Bowmans. They’re the Teachers of the Year. They’re way better than I could ever be. They’ve been doing this forever.”
