Tulsa: Emergent District-Charter Collaboration

Thursday, February 26, 2015

Tulsa, which operates in a state not widely receptive to charter schools, has set a bold course of collaboration between the district and charter sectors. Following a difficult history that included anti-charter litigation in 2007 by Tulsa Public Schools, TPS and three district-authorized charter schools signed a District-Charter Collaboration Compact in January 2014. Superintendent Keith Ballard, who took the helm of the district in 2008, has been instrumental in articulating the role charters can play alongside district schools to improve student outcomes.
