A message from Tulsa Public Schools:

During the last few weeks, we have heard from many parents, teachers, students, and community members about the consolidation plan we are considering in order to ensure quality programming for students on the west side in our current context of Oklahoma's chronic under-funding of education. The Board of Education and district leaders have a lot to consider and discuss based upon the feedback and ideas that we've received from you.

We have made some adjustments to our budget reduction timeline to ensure that our decision making is informed by the most comprehensive and accurate information possible. There are still some cost-saving measures that we will recommend on May 1 so that our teachers, school leaders, and district staff have the information they need to plan for the upcoming school year. The Tulsa Board of Education and Superintendent Deborah Gist have decided to hold a special Board meeting in mid-May where we will present final recommendations for budget reductions.

We are so grateful for your involvement in this process and for your continued engagement throughout this challenging time.��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������
