Teacher Walkout

Reference section for information, logistics concerning teacher walkout

On March 12, 2018, Union Public Schools Board of Education voted without dissent to allow its superintendent to shut down school for up to 25 days. More than 485 teachers were in attendance.

“I know this board agenda item says ‘25 days,’ but it will be indefinite as far as I’m concerned, until teachers get a pay raise,” said Kirt Hartzler, Union superintendent.

The SDE have attempted to answer the most prevalent: see FAQs. If you have further questions, please reach out to Annette Price at (405) 521-6647 or

Contact your legislator

We hope our legislature will be responsive to increasing teacher and support pay, and restore public education funding so that a “walkout” does not occur. Here are some helpful resources:

Our legislature needs to hear from you!
