Read the draft Strategic Plan

Tulsa Public Schools has created a preliminary draft version of the district's new five-year strategic plan. The draft plan was developed by the TPS board, Superintendent Deborah A. Gist and members of the TPS team, with extensive input from the Tulsa community, educators and national leaders in education, as well as a review of current key district data.

The draft of the new strategic plan is available for public review on the TPS website at www.tulsaschools.org/plan. Parents, educators, students and community members can provide comments and suggestions by taking a survey at www.tulsaschools.org/survey or click the link on the Strategic Planning page at the link mentioned above. Comments and suggestions may also be e-mailed to GetInvolved@tulsaschools.org.

"The TPS board and I are extremely grateful to the Tulsa community for their high level of engagement in helping us develop this new strategic plan," Gist said. "Thousands of people have contributed to our plan through surveys and community forums over the last six months, and we're pleased with the support and enthusiasm for public education. There is clearly a desire in Tulsa to provide our children with a world-class education so they can reach their full academic and social potential. Our job is to develop young people of character with the skills they need to be successful in the world; it is our extraordinary teachers and school leadership, in partnership with families and the community, who will make it happen. We want to make education at TPS a joyful experience. I am excited about giving everyone the chance to examine this draft strategic plan closely. The TPS board and I want this to be a plan that our community will embrace. That's why it is critical that we get public feedback on this draft plan, as our children's future depends upon it."

The current five-year strategic plan for TPS expires later this year. The TPS board expects to have a final draft of the strategic plan by Dec. 18 and approve it in January 2016. For strategic plan updates, visit www.tulsaschools.org/plan.

The nation's only annual study and ranking of K-12 education foundations, "Stepping Up: The Top K-12 Education Foundations in the Nation," has ranked The Foundation for Tulsa Schools 15th in the nation.

The study includes education foundations in the top 200 largest (by student population) school districts in the nation, as well as other top-performing foundations in smaller school districts. The Foundation for Tulsa Schools is ranked No. 156 compared with the others in terms of size.

"Stepping Up" looks at eight key performance categories to determine rankings: annual revenues, revenues per student, total assets, assets per student, investment income, total program expenses, expenses per student and human capital (volunteers). The study can be read at www.deweyandassociates.com/education-foundations-2015.html.

The purpose of the study is to advocate the importance of K-12 education foundations while recognizing those that do it best. "Education foundations are innovating and enhancing public education," said Dewey Caruthers, president of Dewey & Associates and author of the study. "More people should know what their local education foundation is doing to dramatically improve the student learning experience."

The foundations included in the study raised $350 million in revenues, held $425 million in assets, spent $181 million on programs and grants and utilized 67,000 volunteers, the study noted. "I believe the K-12 education foundation industry is the fastest-growing philanthropic segment in the U.S.," said Nina Menis, executive director at National Schools Foundation Association. NSFA is the nation's largest and oldest association for K-12 education foundations.

"The Foundation for Tulsa Schools board of directors is committed in their support of Tulsa Public Schools and Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent Deborah A. Gist," said Lucky Lamons, president & CEO of The Foundation for Tulsa Schools. "We are both honored and encouraged by the outcomes of this annual study. We will continue to engage and partner with our business and philanthropic community to support the students and families attending Tulsa Public Schools."

The Foundation for Tulsa Schools, a community based 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was formed in 2001 in order to enhance the educational programs of Tulsa Public Schools. Its purpose is to enlist community support and assistance from the business community to provide additional education resources and opportunities in order to provide a first-class public education for the children of Tulsa Public Schools. To date, the foundation has raised over $16 million.
