The League’s involvement was independent of the school district. We believe we made a difference by hosting these conversations.  We sent reports on what was said  to the school district in time for deliberations before the final decision is made May 2. If necessary, we are prepared to continue our Community Conversations once the final plan is approved by the school board to again make sure all Tulsans can be part of these important changes—changes that not only affect families with children in Tulsa Public Schools but will also have an important impact on Tulsa’s economic health and future prospects.

The Tulsa League was very involved in the last major realignment of Tulsa Public Schools back in the early 1970s when a court mandated our schools be desegregated. At that time, we worked to bring the community together in neutral, safe environments where individuals could express their concerns, ask questions and be heard.
