FAQs: Teacher Walk-out / District Shutdown


Tulsa Public Schools is joining school districts from across the state to support the leadership of the Oklahoma Education Association and our own Tulsa Classroom Teachers Association in a legislative advocacy plan for restored funding to education and increased teacher salaries. That plan includes a state-wide teacher walk-out if our state legislature does not find a way to increase teacher pay and funding to public education by Sunday, April 1.

If that teacher walk-out takes place, Tulsa Public Schools will close all schools in the district effective Monday, April 2. Schools would be closed indefinitely until Oklahoma state leaders create a permanent, sustainable plan to pay educators a professional, more competitive salary.

During a district shutdown:

  • All schools in the district will be closed to the public – students and families will not be able to access these buildings. Any school days affected by the shutdown will be made up at the end of the school year like snow days are.
  • Transportation services will be available only to assist our students taking classes at sites not affected by the closure such as Tulsa Tech and Tulsa Community College.
  • Child Nutrition Services will work with our community partners to provide breakfast and lunch free of charge at approximately 70 non-school sites throughout the city.
  • We will open some buildings to allow students to complete the SAT, and our 12-month employees will serve as test proctors.

Additionally, most district-run extracurricular programming, including athletics, will be suspended. Spring varsity-level teams and spring varsity-level activities are the only exceptions.
