Tulsa Public Schools released its plan for dealing with time lost by the teacher walkout over the last two weeks.

The district released the following statement:

-Pending approval by the Tulsa Board of Education, the last day of school for the 2017-2018 school year will be Thursday, May 31. There have been no changes to the length of the school day.

-The window for completion of state assessments will run from Wednesday, April 18 – Friday, April 27 for students taking the paper version and from Wednesday, April 18 – Friday, May 4 for students taking the web-based version.
