TULSA - Five months ago, a Tulsa charter school was in ruin after a fire destroyed their building. Now the school is continuing its recovery.
The Old Barnard Elementary School was being used by Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences when it burned to the ground Sept. 5, 2012.
Since then, the school, which now holds class in the old Sequoyah Middle School, has spent about $200,000 to buy new textbooks and all 80 of the computers have been replaced.
TSAS is still waiting for insurance money to help pay for $150,000 worth of new furniture.
Now administrators are working to set up meetings with parents and the community to discuss whether to stay at Sequoyah or find another location for next year.
