Good Night Tulsa Book Project
We’re excited to launch the Good Night Tulsa book, written and illustrated by Tulsa Public Schools teachers and staff. From red pandas at the Tulsa Zoo to the Golden Driller, this book brings to life a diverse variety of iconic locations across our city.
As our teachers and students continue their work through distance learning, we’re focusing our efforts on supporting those remote classroom needs. Proceeds from Good Night Tulsa will benefit Partners in Education, which unites businesses, faith-based organizations and the community to support students in Tulsa Public Schools, whether they’re learning at home or physically in the classroom.
An Important Update
In response to the CDC’s recommendation to cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more for the next eight weeks, the Foundation for Tulsa Schools is making the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Designer Showcase.
Thank you all for supporting the Foundation for Tulsa Schools and the 2020 Designer Showcase as we navigate this uncertain time. We will no doubt be back in 2021 better than ever!
Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year the Foundation for Tulsa Schools prioritized funding support for novice teachers. This includes on-boarding, additional professional development days and mentoring from a seasoned peer. The Foundation is committed to continuing to support additional resources for Tulsa Public Schools’ novice teacher workforce.
Through these investments novice teacher retention increased 7% from the previous year; equating to 70 additional teachers choosing to stay at Tulsa Public Schools. The Foundation plans to continue our investment in novice teachers with a goal of further increasing retention from 75.5% to 80%.
