Tulsa Public Schools Announces Board Member Additions and Board President

Tulsa Public Schools Board of Education welcomed two new board members at a recent Board of Education meeting.
John Croisant is the new representative for District 5 and Jerry Griffin is the new representative for District 6.
The district also welcomed District 1 representative Stacey Woolley as the board president, and District 2 representative Jania Wester as the board vice president.
“I would like to express my gratitude to the board for putting their confidence in me moving forward as president,” said Woolley. “I’d also like to thank both Shawna Keller and Suzanne Schreiber for their dedication to leadership. Finally, I would like to thank Ruth Ann Fate for her quarter century of service to the community and Brian Hosmer for his time on the board. Both will be greatly missed.” 
Woolley added, “The Board of Education looks forward to working with our new members, John Croisant and Jerry Griffin in our efforts to ensure that every student meets their greatest potential. We will all be working together to prepare for a successful school year in a time that is vastly different from anything we have experienced before.”
The Tulsa Public Schools Board of Education is an elected board of seven community leaders who serve as the governing body for Tulsa Public Schools. Board members serve four-year terms.
“I am excited to welcome our new board members and grateful for their willingness to be part of the important work happening in Tulsa Public Schools,” said Superintendent Deborah A. Gist. “We are also excited to welcome Board President Woolley and Board Vice President Jania Wester into their new leadership roles.”
The board is responsible for establishing policies under which the district operates while acting within the framework of state and federal laws, while meeting the unique needs and concerns of the communities they serve.
