OKLAHOMA CITY — With sights on recovery from a disruptive pandemic, Oklahoma will dedicate millions of dollars to summer learning and youth programs.

The Oklahoma State Department of Education will invest a minimum of $14 million in federal stimulus funds for summer enrichment through 2023, and individual school districts are leveraging their own federal aid to expand student learning opportunities after the school year ends this month.
