    TULSA, Okla. - Oklahoma schools face another round of budget cuts in the middle of the school year.

    Leaders at Tulsa Public Schools are considering everything from cuts to central office services, increasing class sizes and closing some elementary schools.

    Before this current school year started, TPS cut nearly $7 million from the budget. Throughout the year, four more cuts made that number grow to almost $11 million.

    Superintendent Deborah Gist said they are bracing to cut another $12 million for the next budget year.

    “We are absolutely destroying education in our state,” Gist said.

    The district is asking the public to complete a survey to help determine how to handle cuts moving forward.
