OK Dept. of Education launches program to help students with math lessons

TULSA, Okla. — The Oklahoma State Department of Education is helping math students and teachers overcome the disruption to learning that was created by the pandemic.

The department had a pilot program in the spring with about 400 students.

Officials say 90% of the students who finished that program increased their understanding of math.

It’s one of 4 programs funded by the Federal Pandemic Relief Fund.

Students can participate in one of both of the Math Tutoring Corps sessions. Enrollment begins on September 1st for the fall session. There will be a second session in the Spring.

The Department of Education will also provide the needed technology and internet access for students to complete these sessions.
