Healthy schools in which students develop, achieve, and thrive

Tulsa Public Schools will provide comprehensive social and emotional support for all students with skilled and supported team members.

Our community says this matters because:

“Students must be socially, emotionally, and physically healthy before they can learn the skills they need to succeed.”

Our educators say this matters because:

“The work of teaching is both deeply human and personal. We all do our best work when our social emotional needs are addressed. Educators and students need additional support so that the important work of teaching and learning can happen.”

Our students say this strategy matters because:

“Good mental health allows us to think clearly, develop socially, and learn new skills. Additionally, good friends and encouraging words from adults are important for helping us develop self confidence, high self-esteem, and a healthy outlook on life.”

A closer look

INITIATIVE 1: Provide students with a school experience that builds the knowledge, habits, skills, and mindsets for long term success in school and life.

This means Tulsa Public Schools will:

» Ensure every child has trusting relationships with adults at school who know them, advocate for them, and inspire their personal growth

» Implement consistent practices that nurture strong relationships and create the conditions for meaningful learning

INITIATIVE 2: Work to connect our students to the support they need, when they need it, through a combination of Team Tulsa staff and community partners.

This means Tulsa Public Schools will:

» Expand wellness services for students using both Tulsa Public Schools team members and community partners

» Improve the conditions for quality teaching by expanding services for students with immediate wellness needs

» Bring together teams at every school to coordinate personalized and data-informed support to our students

We will measure our progress through:

  • The percentage of students reporting supportive adult relationships in school
  • The percentage of students reporting a sense of belonging in school
  • The number of classrooms using best practices for student social and emotional wellness
  • The suspension rates for students with special needs
