A message from the superintendent, Mr. Steve Stanley: The Oklahoma Education Association, or OEA as we have come to know them, released information to the public calling for a teacher walk out and school closure that is scheduled for Monday, April 2 nd . According to the OEA, the walk out and subsequent school closure is a protest against the Oklahoma State Legislature for its refusal to provide Oklahoma public school teachers with a raise for over a decade along with its inadequate funding of public schools. All of us will be impacted by a teacher walk out. If the number of teachers who choose to walk out exceeds our ability to find substitute teachers, I will close school. I will do so each day that they are gone.
Juniors and parents, the ACT will be given April 3rd at McLoud High School. The ACT currently serves as the state assessment for high school students in Oklahoma. This date is also a national reporting date to colleges. Free test prep materials may be found here: http://act.org/
