TULSA, Okla. -

Union Public Schools will decide whether to move classes to a virtual setting to start the school year at Monday night's school board meeting.

The meeting will start at 7:00 at the district's Education Service Center but the first thing they'll vote on is to postpone the meeting to 7:30 and move it to the district's Performing Arts Center which will seat more people. The board will then vote on whether to move classes to an online setting to start the school year. This follows Union Superintendent Kirk Hartzler's recommendation to move from in-person learning with the Union Classroom Teacher's Association is also in support of starting the school year online.

There will be an opportunity for people to speak and school officials say that period will be limited to 30 minutes and speakers will have a maximum of three minutes to speak. You'll have to sign up for one of those spots before the meeting gets underway.

The district says masks will be required if you're attending the meeting in-person. The meeting will also be streamed online. You can find a link HERE
