TULSA, Okla. — The biggest school district in Green Country is in the final countdown to the first day of the fall semester. Tulsa Public Schools buckles down before students return to class virtually on Monday.

That means parents must be ready for school, too. To ensure they are, the district scheduled three online parent trainings. In the sessions, TPS officials go over virtual learning platforms.

“This is especially new for our parents. One of the realizations we had in the spring is that a lot of parents were frustrated because they didn’t know how to support their children. We want to provide that support,” said Jim Provenzano, senior data strategist with TPS, during the second parent training on Thursday.

Parents can catch the third and final bilingual live training Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.

The first one was in Spanish on Wednesday.

Provenzano warned, the district is working on WiFi hotspot expansion, but there are other resource outlets for families needing help.
