Tulsa Public Schools is an independent school district serving the Tulsa, Oklahoma area in Northeastern Oklahoma. It is the 2nd largest school district in Oklahoma.[2][3] As of 2010 the district serves approximately 41,224 students,[4] up slightly from 41,200 students from Kindergarten through Twelfth grade in 2006.[5] It is governed by an elected school board.

In 2009, the Tulsa Public School district was put on accreditation probation due a continuing problem of underperforming schools. If the district fails to improve, it will lose accreditation.[6][7]

School Board

The Tulsa School Board has seven members, each representing a different geographic area of the district. Each board member is elected to a four year term, and the terms of each member are staggered so every year at least one member is up for election. The school board establishes policies, manages the budget, hires the superintendent, and is the final appeals board for the district. The school board's authority is limited to official meetings.
