Dear Parents:

It is a privilege to serve Enid families. Our teachers and support staff strive to make a difference every day for every child. We want the best educational opportunities for our students. This includes qualified and caring teachers and support staff, well-rounded instructional programs, and quality resources and materials.

As you likely have heard from a friend, read in the newspaper or noticed on social media, teachers and education supporters in Oklahoma are calling on state legislators to improve education funding by providing teacher pay raises, support staff pay raises and additional dollars for operational expenses, like textbooks. We believe legislators must address these requests swiftly with a long-term funding solution in order to provide students with the educational services they deserve. Additionally, we support our teachers in their efforts to achieve a significant pay increase for the important work they accomplish each day.

It is important to understand how we reached this critical point in our state’s history. Sadly, over the last decade, Oklahoma has invested less and less in the education of its students. We are 48th in the nation for teacher pay and 1st in the nation for funding cuts to schools. We are experiencing a significant teacher shortage, as educators leave for other states and professions. To fill this void, the State Department of Education has issued 1,850 emergency teaching certificates this year alone to individuals who have not been traditionally trained for the classroom. In Oklahoma, we are truly facing a crisis in our schools.

This matter is urgent. Many believe the only way the legislators will act on this issue is for teachers to stop working. In fact, the Oklahoma Education Association has called for a teacher “walkout” to begin April 2 and to continue until legislators take action. This would require school districts to suspend classes and students would miss valuable instructional time. While we are still optimistic that our legislators will take the proper action to avoid a walkout, we believe it is our responsibility to communicate to you that the closure of school due to a walkout is a real and significant possibility. EPS will provide more information to parents after spring break about the impact of a teacher walkout, if the legislature does not take action to address this issue before then.

Many parents and community members have asked how they can help our schools, help our teachers and help avoid a school closure. Again, we believe it is critical that our legislators act NOW to address school funding and teacher compensation. If you agree, we encourage you to contact legislators to let them know you want them to take action. We are grateful to our local legislators who have voted for a teacher pay increase in the past; however, we must remind them to stay the course until the job is done. (Please click here for the contact information for area legislators.)

We are fortunate to have qualified and caring education professionals, who are respected by our community for their expertise and their commitment to students. It is my hope that state leaders will recognize the value and hard work of teachers IMMEDIATELY with legislative action that addresses these pressing concerns. Our teachers deserve it, and so do our students.

On behalf of the EPS team, we appreciate your support as we navigate this issue, as well as the support you have shown throughout the school year. Together, we can ensure we make our schools better places to work and to learn – for students and teachers alike.

Enid Public Schools is proud to present this "first look" of the competitive gymnasium and performing arts center, soon to join the campus of Enid High School. This first-class facility will provide much-needed space and accommodations for athletics, academic, music, drama, media productions and more! This project will be completed in the summer of 2019 and would not have been possible without the generosity of local voters and their support of the 2016 bond program. Thank you to MA+ for the production of this outstanding video and for designing such an incredible facility for our students!
