The site of the former Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences and Barnard Elementary will not be sold to a nursing home and rehab facility.

Tulsa Public Schools’ Chris Payne says that’s after some emphatic opposition from neighbors in last week’s public meeting. He says that opposition prompt the school district to take the proposal off the table.

He says it will take more public input to decide what to do with the property, and the School Board won’t be making a decision in the next few weeks, as it had originally planned.
