TULSA — Officials with Tulsa Public Schools says the Board of Education will be holding a special meeting Thursday.

According to the Board of Education's Agenda, there will be a presentation of the superintendent's recommendation to eliminate 174 positions, due to the deficit the district faces in 2020-21.

The agenda states there will be a discussion and a possible vote to accept or reject the superintendent's recommendation tonight.

Out of the 174 positions recommended for elimination, 110 of those positions are being recommended for deletion, becoming effective July 1, 2020, the agenda says.

According to the agenda, 77 of the 174 positions are currently staffed with either certified or non-certified personnel, while 64 of the positions are custodian position.

The custodian positions are being recommended to be deleted as they become vacant through attrition.

Officials say the meeting will take place at the Charles C. Mason Education Service Center located at 3027 S. New Haven Avenue in Tulsa.

The meeting is set to begin at 5 p.m. on Feb. 13.
