Tulsa Public Schools' Board of Education Renews KTUP Charter

November 8, 2022

Dear KIPP Tulsa Families,

I am beyond grateful for your support over the last few weeks as we advocated to keep KIPP Tulsa University Prep open. Thank you to everyone who wrote letters, made phone calls, shared social media posts, sent emails, and waited for more than three hours at the TPS board meeting last night. 

Your actions were recognized by TPS board members and truly made an impact that resulted in the unanimous approval of our 3-year renewal of KIPP Tulsa University Prep’s charter application. Your advocacy and support turned a 3-3 vote into a 7-0 vote! 

Now that the charters for both schools have been renewed, we can continue to focus on our most important work–educating children and preparing them for a future without limits.  

Last night the KIPP Team & Family watched and cheered us on from across the state and country. Now that we have everyone’s attention, let’s show them what Bulldogs can do!

In partnership,

Darius Kirk
