4/10 closure
Due to the teacher walkout, there will still be no classes in the Bartlesville Public Schools on Tuesday, April 10.

Sack Lunches provided by First Presbyterian are being handed out in the Ranch Heights Parking Lot from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm.  

There will be a School Messenger notice on Tuesday evening about whether or not schools can re-open on Wednesday.

We want to be back in school and are still promoting a plan to end the teacher walkout.
Supt. McCauley has invoked the existing authorization from the Board of Education to continue to suspend all classes in Bartlesville Public Schools on Monday, April 9.

WE ARE STILL LEADING THE WAY TO TRY TO END THIS WALKOUT
Bartlesville devised a plan which could end the walkout. The legislature enacted part of it on Friday, and that is currently in the hands of the Governor. Another element should go to the House on Tuesday. See our plan at TimeIsNowOK.com

STATE TESTING CALENDAR EXTENDED

On Monday, 4/9 the State Superintendent extended the state testing calendar by a week as the statewide teacher walkout entered its second week.

POTENTIAL RESUMPTION CALENDARS

How far classes will extend beyond Memorial Day depends on when the walkout finally concludes. At the bottom of this post is a slide deck showing the possibilities for the rest of this week, when the 10 possible suspension days currently authorized by the Board of Education will be exhausted. Our goal remains to return to class as soon as possible.


SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS & PARENTS

The district deeply appreciates the widespread community support throughout the legislative crisis over school funding and the many community partners who have stepped forward to help students and parents during the closure.
