Oklahoma has received more than $825 million in federal relief dollars for K-12 education since the start of the pandemic.�

The second allocation was more than four times the initial amount. Oklahoma received $160.9 million under the�first package, approved by Congress in March, and $665 million under the�second, which was signed into law Dec. 27.�

The majority of the funds are available directly to districts, while a small portion was set aside for new and expanding charter schools, grant programs and agency administration.�
