Dear 8th Grade Parents,

The Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) has created a new statewide virtual tutoring initiative. The Oklahoma Math Tutoring Corps will provide students in 8th grade with real-time, virtual tutoring support from live tutors beginning in January 2022. Participating students will meet virtually with a tutor for 50 minutes three times a week over a period of nine weeks. All tutoring will occur outside of school hours. The goal of the Math Tutoring Corps is to give students opportunities for individualized, targeted learning of math processes and problems needed for success in their current and future math coursework.

 Tutors will be certified teachers and college students who have received training for this initiative. The OSDE will make every effort to group tutors and students from the same geographical area. To provide focused and consistent attention to your student, each tutor will work with no more than three students. Students will remain together with the same tutor throughout the nine weeks. Families and guardians will be copied on all communication from the tutor to the student.

 The OSDE is asking participating students and families to agree to the following:

  • Student will attend at least 80% of the 27 tutoring sessions.
  • Student will have a quiet place to join the sessions virtually.
  • Student will actively participate with the tutor during tutoring sessions.

 Once the OSDE receives your information, they will work with you to determine any technology and connectivity needs to ensure your student can participate successfully. 

 Learn more about the new Oklahoma Math Tutoring Corps program by accessing this OSDE webpage. If you have questions about this program, contact Anthony Purcell, Director of High School and College Math Readiness, (Anthony.Purcell@sde.ok.gov).

 If you would like for your 8th grade student to participate, visit this website to enroll. The Math Tutoring Corps has the potential to strengthen math skills quickly, equipping students for long-term success in math coursework. The OSDE hopes you will join them in this important work.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced a new benefit program that seeks to help families struggling to afford broadband internet. The Emergency Broadband Benefit could help qualifying Oklahoma families who may need assistance with the cost of internet and other technology needs. Below are some quick facts on the new benefit program:

Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.
  • The Emergency Broadband Benefit is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.
  • A household is eligible if a member of the household meets one of the criteria below:
    • Has an income that is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or participates in certain assistance programs such as SNAP, Medicaid or Lifeline;
    • Approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision in the 2019-20, 2020-21 or 2021-22 school year; Attachment E

Fort Towson Public Schools Parents/Guardians,

Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) is a program that helps children who would have received free or reduced-price meals at school but schools were forced to go to virtual learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting as soon as Friday, September 17th students who qualify will receive a debit card preloaded with funds that can be used for groceries. Students who are eligible will receive a P-EBT benefits card equivalent to $6.82 per day for school days in which the student was enrolled in a participating school AND received virtual instruction/distance learning. No benefits will be issued for those days in which the student received in-person instruction or was counted absent from virtual instruction.

For the 2020-21 school year, schoolchildren must meet two important eligibility requirements: 

  • Children must have been enrolled in a school district that participates in a federal meal program where meals are served at a school, and 
  • Children must qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on income and have turned in the free or reduced-priced meals application to school for 2020-21, OR be enrolled in a school that participated in the Community Eligible Provision, Provision 2 or Provision 3 federal program in 2020-21 which is what Fort Towson Public Schools participated in.

 There is no application process for these benefits. Families will receive benefits automatically if their school has identified to the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) that a student qualifies.  

To learn more about eligibility requirements, what role your school plays in the program, and other details about P-EBT, OSDE developed a set of Frequently Asked Questions.
