Williams said, overall, the new cuts are another shock to the district.

"The reading sufficiency funds, adult education, ACE Remediation, Oklahoma Parents As Teachers, you know, those are all a little bit of a surprise for schools, so we're kind of grappling with the impact on our budgets," Williams said.

The budget does restore funding to some programs, including $185,000 dollars to Tulsa Street School.
