The future of Classen School of Advanced Studies

{/literal}{include file="blk:educationstationblog_header"}{literal}

The Oklahoma City School Board voted to deny out-of-district transfers to Classen School of Advanced Studies for the 2013-14 school year. (Kiddos who already go there will be allowed to keep attending.) But the decision has been controversial and has lots of parents asking questions about the future of the school. On Friday morning, PTSA President Dixie Hendrix sent out this statement in the school’s weekly newsletter:

There have been numerous rumors of late, and I would like to address the most recent one regarding the future of Classen: No Classen PTSA officers have talked about or have ANY intention of applying for Classen SAS to become an enterprise or charter school. NO PLANS WHAT SO EVER!!! I have heard nothing from anyone who has any plans to do this. And I will not support any attempt to do so.
