There's another meeting Thursday evening, April 20, for parents and students to give their thoughts on consolidation plans at Tulsa Public Schools.

The district's current boundary map shows a lot of students go to Park and Remington elementary schools right now. The new proposal would bring those schools together with Early Child Development Center Porter.

At the 6 p.m. meeting at Clinton Middle School Thursday, district leaders say they want to hear from parents and neighbors about how to make this a smooth move for students and families in west Tulsa.

Tulsa school leaders suggest closing the three schools. All of those students would come together, making a larger elementary school here at the current Clinton Middle School building.

Clinton Middle School students would move to Webster High, which would house both middle and high school students.

This is to make up for a $12 million cut in funding for next school year.

The next meeting is at Webster High School on April 24. It will also run from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
