Tulsa Public Schools' Indian Education Program provides resources, support, and opportunities for students, families, teachers, and school leaders to engage in cultural and educational experiences linked to heritage. We offer tutoring, school supplies, cultural services, academic, and other services for native students. Please explore the links below to learn more.
During the evenings of March 11 and March 12, Tulsa Public Schools hosted two Indian Education workshops. The three working groups, 26 attendees, comprised of students, parents, tribal leadership and community advocates participated to discuss the strengths and challenges of the Indian Education Program in Tulsa Public Schools. Using Native American student data, community feedback, survey responses, needs assessment results, and program budgets, these stakeholders developed three proposals for the programmatic focus and organizational structure of the Tulsa Public Schools Indian Education Program for the 2020-2021 school year. As a result, we created a community-wide survey with the purpose of collecting more important feedback. We welcomed parents and the community to review the three proposals. The Indian Education Proposal Feedback Survey closed March 31st.
With over one hundred responses from the community, we prepared these proposals and are presenting these results to our parent committee. We anticipate presenting a recommendation for changes to our Board of Education on April 20 and on May 4 for the Board of Education to act upon recommendation.
