Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Deborah Gist will recommend the consolidation of Park Elementary, Remington Elementary and ECDC Porter to the school board at a meeting Wednesday night, a source tells News On 6.
The plan is to make a larger elementary school to be housed at Clinton Middle School. Clinton Middle school will be moved to Webster High school to form a larger secondary site.
The Tulsa School Board will hear staff recommendations on budget cuts Wednesday night immediately after the district reveals results of a public survey to get public recommendations.
The district is preparing for a worst-case scenario of a $12 million reduction in funding for the coming school year.
The district reports the options include closing a high school or as many as three elementary schools or furlough days to cut the almost $1 million daily operating expenses at TPS.
Superintendent Deborah Gist will appear on 6 in the Morning on April 6 at 6 a.m. to discuss the TPS budget situation.
