Starting Monday, Oklahoma schools will launch distance learning to finish out the spring semester.

Superintendent Deborah Gist and State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister told Tulsa Chamber of Commerce members that disparities in internet and computer access among students are problems they hope to solve.

Tulsa Public Schools are providing laptops to many students while Broken Arrow will use online classes and paper lessons distributed at the BA Walmart.

Here's a breakdown of how school districts are planning to send out lessons:

  • 26% of schools will use distance learning and paper lessons
  • 22% use tools, like Infinite Campus, Google Classroom and PowerSchool
  • 21% will provide students online lesson plans
  • 12% are using textbook based lessons
  • Another 10% will rely on broadcast lessons on OETA and PBS

The rest are a work in progress.
