Oklahoma Partnership for Expanded Learning Opportunities

The Oklahoma Partnership for Expanded Learning is a collaboration of agencies and organizations throughout Oklahoma which helps build and expand school-based programs to enhance learning opportunities for students, and provides technical assistance to new and established programs.

Accomplishments: 

In October 2015, Oklahoma was awarded a $225,000 grant from the C.S. Mott Foundation to create a statewide partnership focused on Out of School Time programs. The Oklahoma Partnership for Expanded Learning (OPEL) was created to support Out of School Time programs to coordinate a unified vision to inform policy and quality afterschool initiatives.
