Despite Tuesday’s executive order from Gov. Kevin Stitt, 10 Tulsa-area school districts said they have not heard from any state employees interested in covering classes.
Officials with Bartlesville, Bixby, Broken Arrow, Claremore, Jenks, Owasso, Sand Springs, Sapulpa, Tulsa and Union public schools all confirmed Thursday afternoon that their districts have not had any state employees sign up as substitute teachers since the order was signed Tuesday.
The closest any of those eight districts have come to having state employees sign up to substitute so far are inquiries from a local judge and municipal police officers about volunteering with Bartlesville Public Schools.
