It is with deep sadness and regret that Porterville Unified School District announces the passing of Bartlett Middle School teacher Dale Koop today. Mr. Koop taught math at Bartlett for 25 years. He also was an instructional coach for the math department, the ASB advisor, and the athletic director at the school.
On behalf of the entire PUSD community, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to Dale’s wife, Elizabeth, and the rest of the Koop family.
Mr. Koop was 59.
Additional information regarding services and arrangements will be made public as it becomes available. Please join us in keeping Dale’s family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
