TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa Public Schools is hosting its second round of community meetings about their upcoming budget changes.
Recommendations were made ahead of the meetings to save $2-$3 million by closing or consolidating four of the district’s elementary schools. Another recommendation suggested $13-$14 million can be saved through changes to the district office services.
The district held several meetings in September and October when it announced they would need to cut about $20 million for their 2020-2021 budget.
The second round of meetings will span four days at four different locations:
- Monday, December 9, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the McLain High School cafeteria.
- Tuesday, December 10, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Memorial High School cafeteria.
- Wednesday, December 11 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the East Central School cafeteria.
- Thursday, December 12 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Webster High School Allen cafeteria
The first round of meetings was coupled with a web survey for the community to give feedback on the potential changes.
The results of the first round of meetings were released in a report by the district in late October.
