OKLAHOMA CITY -

Some parents said they are beyond frustrated that kids aren’t back in the classroom full-time, but Oklahoma City Public Schools isn’t sure exactly how its parents feel.

On Monday, the district sent out a survey to parents to gauge their level of comfort with full-time, in-person learning.

The main question is seeing how many parents will send their child back to class full-time for the remainder of the school year.

OKCPS hopes to have those surveys back by the end of the week and will then consult with health experts before making a decision,

The district told News 9 the goal has always been to get children back in the classroom for additional in-person learning.

The survey closes on Thursday. The district said it will look at the results and meet with local health leaders before making a decision on when to return full-time.

The OKCPS School Board next meets on March 8.  The next meeting would not take place until March 22.

OKCPS currently has an enrollment of more than 31,000 students.
