Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID Supplemental Grant’s Resource Page

The Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE), in collaboration with the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) and other stakeholders, received supplemental funding to support return-to-school activities post COVID-19 closure. Supplemental funds for the dissemination of Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 school-based guidance will impact 703,650 students and 43,056 teachers within 512 districts statewide. The OSDE believes the work of schools, communities, and the agency should serve the whole child; ensuring all Oklahoma children are safe, healthy, challenged, engaged and supported. With that belief in mind, schools across Oklahoma will receive ongoing support with resources and webinars related to the grant’s focus areas of physical activity, nutrition services, chronic disease management, and social emotional learning/climate. Resources and webinars will be listed below as they become available.
