Clear your calendar for next Tuesday evening. Luther Public Schools Superintendent Sheldon Buxton says a special board meeting will be held to discuss budget cuts and revisions to help the district survive during a turbulent financial time.
As we know, Luther is hardly alone in this budget crunch. Many school districts in the state are facing harsh reductions in faculty, staff and programs. Just this week, Oklahoma City Public Schools announced the reduction of more than 200 teaching positions.
Tuesday’s special meeting will outline the cuts for Luther schools in programs, faculty and staff.
Dr. Buxton said the agenda for the meeting will be posted Thursday.
He also said he is grateful to the community for its help. Many individuals, groups, churches and even the Luther Economic Development Authority have donated school supplies – ranging from paper towels to dry erase markers, and even some technology equipment to help out.
“All supplies and acts of generosity are very much appreciated and speak loudly for the community and their support of their school,” said Dr. Buxton.
The Special School Board Meeting will be Tuesday, March 29 at 6:30 pm in the high school auditorium.
