Gundy offers to finance Stillwater BOE to make schools safer.


Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy told the Stillwater Public Schools Board of Education that he would financially support it through the rest of the year to help get a plan in place to make the schools safer.

Gundy, who has two children in the school system, addressed the board at a meeting, where many had gathered to learn if the school would support a teacher walkout. His concern, centered on school safety, or the lack thereof.

“I let one (child) off here everyday, and school as we know it, is supposed to be a safe haven. We never had this issue, but unfortunately it’s increasing,” he said.

He added questions for the board.  “Do we have a plan in place, and when you go to bed at night do you feel good about it? … If I was in charge, I would have a plan. Maybe not perfect but it would be a plan.”
