The new commons area will become the fans new "front entry" for both CHS gyms. Construction fences should be down before students arrive. Oct. 30th is target date to be totally done at CHS. In addition to the late start and then rain delays,it has been hard getting materials delivered on time this summer and several painters were lost to many projects ongoing in Tulsa.

That will help rebuild the dwindling "carryover" that helps the school make to Nov./Dec. of the next school when state and federal revenues are least assured. Payroll takes about 84% of the school budget (had been as high as 90% recently). With all of the cutbacks to stay within budget, the district is "not able to do everything we would like to do" but believes they are still providing high quality educational opportunities for students.
