The superintendent of Tulsa Public Schools has responded to the Oklahoma State Department of Education's decision to downgrade the district's accreditation status.

In a letter to the State Board of Education, Superintendent Dr. Deborah Gist expressed concerns about the process, saying the decision to downgrade was "unjustified and unsupported."

Dr. Gist goes on to say that the department should not have lowered the accreditation without allowing the district to review the case with the OSDE.

TPS' status is now "accreditation with warning" but it does not impact state funding.
