The district continues to look at ways to fix the estimated $20 million deficit for the 2020-2021 school year.

According to the agenda, there is justification for the proposal in order to "support the district's need to provide crucial services and programming within its financial constraints."

The meeting will be held on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in the Cheryl Selman Room at the Charles C. Mason Education Center.

The location is 3027 South New Haven Avenue, Tulsa.
