  • We Support Our Teachers

    March 12, 2018


    Dear families,


    Thank you for your continued support of the teachers and staff at Cooper Elementary. I am writing today to share some information about upcoming advocacy efforts that may impact your family’s experience in our school over the next few weeks.


    Tulsa Public Schools is joining school districts from across the state to work with the leadership of the Oklahoma Education Association and our own Tulsa Classroom Teachers Association  to fight for restored funding to education and increased teacher salaries. Beginning on March 12, we will support our teachers in a "work the contract" effort that will continue through the end of the month. This means that our teachers will work only the seven hours and fifty minutes per day required by contract instead of working late into the evening and during the weekend.

    I want you to understand that this “work the contract” effort will be extraordinarily difficult for our teachers – they are deeply committed to your children and want only what is best for them academically, personally, and socially. Your teachers are taking this job action because your children matter, and they deserve a well-funded public education system where their teachers can afford to stay long enough to see them graduate.

    Here are some of the changes you may see as teachers “work the contract” over the next few weeks:

    ·         Papers, tests, and projects may not be graded quickly;

    ·         Teachers will not be available by phone or email after the school day ends;

    ·         Teachers will not be able to meet with parents or students outside of the school day; and

    ·         Some extracurricular activities and clubs may be suspended.

    At our school, those activities and clubs that will be suspended are: Bike Club, Cheerleading, Choir, Grace and Courtesy, and Golf, First Tee.


    I hope that you will stand with us by contacting our state leaders to let them know that Oklahoma children, teachers, and families are counting on them to create a plan to fund our schools and pay teachers the salaries they deserve. Visit www.oklegislature.gov to find contact information for your state legislator.
