School Districts Announce Plans For Day 2 Of Teacher Walkout

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Here's a list of school district plans for the proposed teacher walkout the week of April 2.

Many school districts have not made a final decision as of March 30. We will update this story as more decisions are made.

The Oklahoma State House and Senate passed a package of tax hikes to generate funds for teacher pay, and Governor Mary Fallin signed the package Thursday evening.

After the signing, Oklahoma Education Association President Alicia Priest released a statement saying:

"What yesterday looked like a positive step forward and a historic down payment on our children's future now hangs in the balance as the legislature dismantles the funding needed to solve this crisis they created in the first place.

"Stunts like these are why Oklahomans lack any trust or confidence in the state legislature.

"The goal of Oklahoma educators has always been to avoid a walk out, because lawmakers continue breaking promises, even promises made less than 24 hours ago, we call on schools to remain closed on Monday so educators can send a clear message at the Capitol: Oklahoma educators won't stand for these games any longer."

Be sure to watch our second Education Oklahoma special starting at 7 p.m. Monday, April 2. We'll have coverage of the walkout from across the state and we'll take an in-depth look at we got to this point.
