Thousands of Green Country students head back to school Monday morning. Students at Tulsa Public, Tulsa Union, Sand Springs and Sapulpa are among those starting classes Monday.

Broken Arrow schools begin on Thursday.

Tulsa Public School Superintendent Dr. Keith Ballard says he feels good about the start of classes on Monday.

He talked with News On 6 at the district's bus barn facility Monday morning.  About 40,000 students begin classes across the TPS district Monday.

Ballard says the biggest change is that every TPS student will be in uniform this school year.
