Tulsa Public Schools will host nine community forums at high schools across the district to solicit ideas and input from parents, students and Tulsa citizens in order to develop the district's new five-year strategic plan.
Attendees will participate in small group exercises and share their discussion with the larger group; they may attend any session at any school, regardless of where they live.
The schedule of community forums is as follows:
- Thursday, Sept. 3, 6-7:30 p.m., East Central High School, 12150 E. 11th St.

To date, there have been two planning sessions for teachers, as well as a session for principals and TPS administrators.
The current five-year strategic plan for TPS expires later this year, and a new plan is under development. This spring more than 3,300 teachers, students, parents and community members responded to a public survey regarding the new strategic plan. In that survey, 78 percent of Tulsans responded that the purpose of public education was to "help students fulfill their potential and have choices in life."

Salk Elementary School Mission Statement
The Salk Elementary School mission is to teach all children to solve problems, understand and cooperate with others, and to become lifelong learners contributing to the community as effective leaders.
Salk School Motto
Success at Salk begins when we set goals, work hard, and believe in ourselves. Together we can SOAR toward excellence.
About the SOAR Tickets
Some parents have been asking, “What is a SOAR ticket?” That’s easy.
A Salk teacher, staff member, or administrator may give a SOAR ticket to student when they see the student doing something right. In other words, the student showed that he or she knows the Salk expectations for school behavior.
Our expectations for behavior are in effect all day — from arrival to dismissal. They are summarized by the word SOAR, which stands for:
· S - Safety: Students watch out for their own and others’ physical and emotional well-being. (Examples: Following hallway, classroom, and playground procedures; using kind words; making good choices)
· O - Ownership: Students take responsibility for their actions and interactions (Examples: Completing assignments on time; asking for help when needed; and accepting responsibility and consequences)
· A - Achievement: Students come to school ready to learn and do their best each and every day.(Examples: Staying on task; being prepared for activities; and participating in activities with interest and enthusiasm)
· R - Respect: Students show respect to adults and other students, and respect school and personal property. (Examples: Following instructions; speaking politely to others; using materials without damaging them)
Once students collect enough tickets, they may exchange them for prizes from their homeroom teacher or school administrators. We encourage all Salk Eagles to SOAR!
