Mark Twain and Wright elementary schools will be occupied by charter schools next year.
The Tulsa Public Schools Board approved the district to enter into leases with Collegiate Hall for Wright and KIPP Tulsa for Mark Twain.
There was some pushback on the proposal. Board member Jennettie Marshall said a four-person review of the charter schools’ applications is not an official district policy, and she would rather see that set before voting on the applications.
The board approved them with a promise to adopt the process used as policy for future lease applications.
