Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent Deborah A. Gist today released the following statement:

"I urge the members of our State House of Representatives to act swiftly to pass HB 1035X and begin the long-overdue process of funding Oklahoma's state budget to a level that will sustain critical programs and services and provide a desperately needed pay increase for our teachers. Countless Oklahoma families are looking to our state to pass a plan that will keep our schools open, protect our mental health services, and provide care to our aging parents and loved ones. HB 1035X is an important start to addressing our state's continued funding challenges, but our leaders must continue working on a long-term solution - with permanent and sustainable revenue - to truly put our state back on track.

"Today, every Oklahoman should be asking the House to take action. Visit www.oklegislature.gov and call your legislator, send them an email, message them on Facebook, and then tell a friend to do the same. Our children cannot wait any longer, and our teachers need a reason to stay."
