Tulsa Public School students will continue distance learning until March 22nd.
Officials said the TPS Board of Education made the decision after discussing the latest COVID-19 data and assessing the health and safety conditions for the district.
Officials said Tulsa Public School students will return to in-person learning on Monday, March 22.
Governor Kevin Stitt issued a statement in response to the TPS decision, saying,
“As governor, I join the thousands of parents, students and teachers in Tulsa who are heartbroken to learn that they will continue to be denied the option to be together in their classrooms for at least 374 days. Sadly, this decision is based on politics instead of the data which clearly shows that schools can be reopened safely.”
