LATEST UPDATE: State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister announced today that she will propose a Continuous Learning Plan (distance learning) to the State Board of Education this week to complete the school year for Oklahoma students without reopening school buildings during the global pandemic.

The Board will hold a special meeting on Wednesday, March 25. Board members will meet virtually.

“We are determined to support our Pre-K through high school students as well as English learners, special education students and those who need reinforced skills or additional enrichment. We recognize this reality will present challenges for many families and districts, but these are extraordinary times that call for extraordinary measures. This coordinated, swift and thoughtful action will help safeguard the health and well-being of our communities, students and professionals in public schools. We must do absolutely everything in our power to reduce transmission of coronavirus.” – State Supt. Joy Hofmeister

Hi! I am Sherri Hultner and I am the founder of EdmondActive. I started EdmondActive July 13, 2009 on Facebook as a way to bring all information about all of Edmond into one place, then started Around Edmond blog here at the site July 24, 2009 as a way of starting the conversation as to what is happening around our town. I have been a publisher of local zines, a glossy 80 page magazine distributed at a extremely high sell through on national newsstands of over 30% and EdmondActive Magazine for the last 23 years! I have been married for 31 years, have adult sons whom I am very proud of and have been a dog mom to 4 labs, 1 shepard lab, and a golden retriever.  EdmondActive print magazine was first published in November 2009 as a way to bring social media information into the outside world and is secondary to our social networks of over 35,000 residents in Edmond and OKC. The magazine starts its 13th volume in 2021, and I am grateful to have a great readership after all of these years.
