We want to hear from you! – 2024-2025 School Calendar
Tulsa Public Schools wants your input. We’re working to build a calendar for the 2024-2025 school year (next year) that best meets the needs of our students and families. Please complete this brief survey to share your thoughts.
Celebrate Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage Month, during which we recognize and celebrate the tribal heritage of our Native American students and honor the land on which we live, work, and attend school. The Indian Education team shares resources with teachers for optional lessons, and provides lists of Native American books and literature for student exploration and enrichment.
Students are invited to celebrate each day this week (November 13 - 17) by wearing colors that represent different Native American focuses. Click here for the full schedule. As you celebrate and honor indigenous culture and heritage this month, be sure to tag @IndianEd Tulsa in your Facebook posts and photos!
Attention families – especially for students entering PreK, Kindergarten, 6th, or 9th grade next year – Enrollment starts soon!
Attend an ENROLLMENT INFO SESSION in November to learn about Tulsa Public Schools enrollment process and ask questions. Snacks & refreshments are provided at these kid-friendly sessions. See the flyer for more information.

Thanks to federal recovery funds, we were able to invest in air quality improvements in our buildings, Ready. Set. Summer! programming, and enrichment programs to address learning loss. Learn more about ESSER (federal recovery) funding here.
