Tulsa Public Schools' Board of Education formally decided Monday to close school on Tuesday, November 6th. The date is Oklahoma's general election day.
District leaders had been strongly suggesting they would do so following the teacher walkout, but Monday, the board voted unanimously to approve the decision.
Some board members also said they were unhappy with the decision to rename Lee Elementary and think the vote should be reevaluated at a future day.
The votes to rename Choteau and Columbus Elementary schools have not taken place yet. Chouteau's name change is expected to be brought before the board at their June 4th meeting.
