The Putnam City Schools Foundation Stands with Teachers
The Putnam City Schools Foundation stands with our district’s teachers in pressing the Oklahoma Legislature to find a revenue stream for both salary increases and adequate funding for our schools. We have seen firsthand the effect that funding cuts have had on our district, from a loss of qualified teachers, to reductions in programming for our students.
For decades, people have chosen to teach in Putnam City because of strong professional development and a sense of community in our buildings, but this will not continue if our state does not find a recurring revenue stream. In order for Putnam City to remain the district of excellence for which it is known, we must continue to find reasonable solutions to this funding crisis, and welcome the opportunity to support the district’s efforts to allow teachers the time needed to advocate for their students.
