OKLAHOMA CITY (May 13, 2021) – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister today commended state leaders after the announcement on the Fiscal Year 2022 state budget agreement. The agreement includes a record $3.2 billion in funding for common education.

“After such a very challenging year in the wake of the pandemic, the budget agreement announced today is tremendous news for students, teachers and, in fact, all Oklahomans who benefit from a strong educational system,” Hofmeister said.

“An additional $137 million for the school funding formula and $60 million for textbooks will go a long way toward ensuring our children are on track academically. We are grateful to the House and Senate leadership and Gov. Stitt for this considerable investment in public education.”
