TEACHER WALKOUT: What schools are doing

Source KSWO Source KSWO

As we have been talking about for the past month, April 2 was the first day of the teacher walkout across Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Legislature passed a bill on March 29 which they say will provide an estimated $450 million for teacher pay raises and increased spending for education across the state. While some are happy about the steps taken by the House and Senate, many across the state say it is still not enough and are angry that some of the funding, specifically nearly $50 million from the proposed hotel/motel tax, has already been repealed by legislators. 

Many other districts will be closed in support of teachers and personnel but, there are some schools which will still be in session.

We have created a list of what schools have announced and will update this list as more information is gathered.

Lawton - Closed Thursday April 12. Will poll staff daily to decide when to return.

Duncan - Closed Wednesday April 11. Back in session on Thursday.

Altus - Closed Wednesday April 11

Cache - Closed indefinitely

Central High - Closed Wednesday April 11

IF A SCHOOL HAS ALREADY RETURNED TO NORMAL CLASS SCHEDULES, THEY HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE LIST.
