MOORE — Moore Public Schools were set to resume Thursday over the objections of teachers who said they were not consulted about the decision.

Wednesday, Superintendent Robert Romines said he would reconsider whether to reopen.

Educators, parents, and students filled the Central Junior High School auditorium Wednesday evening, looking for answers after learning schools would reopen Thursday and the district would be sending "a small delegation" from each site to the Capitol to participate in the nearly two-week long teacher walkout.
