The Claremore School Board on Wednesday announced Bryan Frazier as incoming Superintendent of Claremore Public Schools. Frazier will assume his new role on July 1 after longtime Superintendent Michael McClaren retires on June 30.

Currently acting as associate superintendent of Bixby Public Schools, Frazier has spent 22 years in public education. He has served as a science teacher and middle school principal in Broken Arrow, and as the principal of Bixby High School.

While still fulfilling his contract with Bixby, Frazier will work closely with McClaren to ensure a smooth transition over the next five months. Frazier stated he is excited about coming to Claremore and pursued the position with passion due to the tradition and potential of the school system.

Frazier also said he looks forward to getting actively involved in the Claremore Community, as he meets staff and builds new relationships with stakeholders to ensure a successful future for education.

“He is a professional educator, innovator, motivator and proven team leader,” said School Board Member Rick Mosier.

Frazier is married and has one daughter who is a speech pathologist in Texas and one son in Alaska, who graduated from West Point Military Academy. He has two grandsons.
