Sapulpa schools asking parents to fill out survey amid budget crisis

Sapulpa Public Schools has sent out a survey to parents asking for feedback regarding possible steps by the district to deal with the state’s budget crisis, including virtual class days with students on computers, and eliminating fall/spring breaks.

“In an effort to place our district in the best financial position possible, (Sapulpa Public Schools) is looking at numerous options that impact overall financial planning for the district and that will ultimately impact classrooms and your student(s),” an email sent to parents states. “It is our desire that we make the best financial decisions possible for the district and want to consider your preferences and opinions in our discussions.”

Superintendent Kevin Burr said Sapulpa lost $230,000 in midyear cuts and is projecting a cut of $722,000 next school year. That does not factor any money that could come from the “Rainy Day” fund.
