TULSA — Union Public Schools is considering rezoning three elementary schools to relieve overcrowding.

Students from Boevers, Rosa Parks and Clark would be moved to Ellen Ochoa for the 2019-20 school year.

Administration said Ochoa was built to ease overcrowding and prepare for future growth in the district.

The final phase of construction on Ochoa is expected to be completed for the upcoming school year. At that point, the school will be several hundred students short of its capacity.

Less than 250 students would be affected if the board approves the plan on February 11.

  • From Boevers: Sawmill Apartments, Cimarron Apartments, and Briarglen Plaza Duplexes
  • From Clark: Bradford Creek Apartments, Boca Vista Apartments, and Village Duplexes
  • From Rosa Parks: Creekside Apartments and the Park Terrace housing addition

Superintendent Kirt Hartzler and Associate Superintendent Charlie Bushyhead will host a meeting to speak with parents of affected students to discuss the changes. It is at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29, at Ochoa Elementary.
