Teachers say the $6,100 raise signed into law by Governor Mary Fallin last week is a start, but they also want to make sure students are not forgotten.

" I'm nervous because I feel like legislators aren't going to take us seriously and it's a very serious issue that needs to be taken care of," said Tulsa 1st grade teacher Kirsten Mccullough

All of the major school districts in eastern Oklahoma have canceled classes for today.

Schools will be shut down in Tulsa, Union, Jenks, Broken Arrow, Bixby, Bartlesville, Owasso, and Muskogee.
