Our first Classroom Learning and School Supply (CLASS) Grant, offered in February 2022, received enough positive responses from our Oklahoma teachers to warrant a second opportunity. During November 1, 2 and 3, all full-time certified public school teachers directly serving PreK to 12th grade students (including school counselors, reading specialists, media specialists, speech pathologists, physical therapists, and occupational/speech therapists) are invited to submit an $800 CLASS grant.
