Cleveland Elementary Parents Concerned About Cuts
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- Parents with children at Cleveland Elementary School received flyers while picking up their kids from school Tuesday. The flyers signed "Concerned Cleveland Parents" say Music, PE and Art teachers are being loaned out one day per week.
"I mean this is something that's important," said Jeremy Bledsoe as he read over the flyer. Bledsoe has two children who attend the school.
The news comes just one year after parents say the Oklahoma City School District took away a full-time Science teacher. "Art and Science are so important," said grandparent, Shirley Adams.
Tierney Tinnin, a spokesperson for Oklahoma City Public Schools says the flyers are not accurate. "We had some parents come to a board meeting, the last board meeting and voice some concerns about the elementary staffing formula," said Tinnin. She says Supt. Karl Springer will address the staffing issue at an open meeting with parents Wednesday at five o'clock at the Vince Gill Auditorium at Cleveland Elementary.
"I think it's important for us as parents to go to these things when we can, if we can," said father of three, Adam Logsdon.
FOX 25 plans to attend the open meeting. Check okcfox.com for updates.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
