Oklahoma State Superintendent’s Program to Assist Teachers

The storms that hit the state a couple of months ago caused a lot of major damage to not only businesses and homes, but also schools. Many classrooms were significantly damaged or destroyed, which has sparked concern among teachers and administrators. Aside from dealing with recovery in their personal lives after the tragedy, teachers also have to face the problems of collecting their school supplies and repairing their classrooms.

With the next school year starting in just a little over a month, this is presenting a huge challenge for teachers. That is why Oklahoma State Superintendent Janet Barresi has started a program that will help teachers obtain the necessary school supplies for the upcoming school year.

Superintendent Barresi is launching “Project Meet the Need,” which is a program specifically aimed at helping teachers collect supplies to meet their needs.. Through the program, teachers will be provided with specific items that they place on their wish lists.

The program is asking teachers and school administrators to create a list of the items they need for their classrooms and post them on the program’s website. This will notify the state superintendent’s office, so they can gather the needed supplies.

Those who want to participate in the program can offer their help through donations. Donors can take supplies to the Oliver Hodge Building at the State Department of Education from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.
