House Dem Education Policy Team Requests AG examine CARES Act Spending
We must ensure that CARES dollars meant for supporting services for low-income students were distributed according to approved CARES guidelines. We along with the US Federal Courts and several other states share concerns that they were not.
Today we submitted a request to Attorney General Mike Hunter to determine if the Governor's Emergency Education Relief funds (GEER) were spent in Oklahoma appropriately. If they weren't, we have requested they be redistributed correctly per CARES guidelines as intended.
