City of Broken Arrow, BAPS partner for school site volunteers
In a show of overwhelming support and partnership, the Broken Arrow City Council unanimously approved a resolution at its regularly scheduled council meeting Tuesday declaring the City’s support to provide volunteers to Broken Arrow Public Schools in its efforts to continue in-person learning.
The resolution stems from the latest districtwide transition to distance learning for all grades due to staffing illnesses and shortage-related absences, as well as a growing number of student absences.
“In the face of the ongoing pandemic, Broken Arrow Public Schools continues to subscribe to the value and importance of in-person learning for all its students,” said Broken Arrow Public Schools Superintendent Chuck Perry. “We are so thankful for a City Council that upholds our values and wants to see students and teachers succeed in the face of adversity. This partnership between the city and our schools is what makes Broken Arrow incredibly special.”
Volunteer workers from the city will be required to complete paperwork and submit information for a background check. Further requirement details will be made available in the coming days.
