Hofmeister remarks on State Board of Equalization meeting, budget shortfalls

OKLAHOMA CITY (April 20, 2020) – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister made the following remarks at the conclusion of today’s State Board of Equalization meeting. Hofmeister is one of 7 voting members of the board.

“We are grateful to the Governor and Legislature for their strong efforts to hold state agency budgets harmless the remainder of the current fiscal year. This stability will enable schools to begin preparing for rough roads ahead next fiscal year and beyond. Now more than ever, we must have the ability to ensure every student in every district across the state has the tools to bridge the digital divide. We must act strategically with federal relief funds and state resources to not only mitigate learning losses but to equip students to thrive regardless of external circumstances beyond their control.”
