In Tulsa, Union Superintendent Cathy Burden said the board members were “courageous enough to do the right thing.”

Tulsa Superintendent Keith Ballard said he was “very happy with the outcome.”

Barresi's response

State schools Superintendent Janet Barresi said she is confident the state Education Department has done an accurate job of interpreting state law and agency rules. She said she expects the board to move forward on the release Oct. 25.

“I have complete confidence in the rules and the way they were interpreted,” Barresi said. “I stand by the rules. I do believe they are correct. I do believe they are clear. We're looking forward to having these out to the public.”
