“OKDHS's School-Based Program is a tremendous investment in our students and their families. The service our worker provides is invaluable. She is able to link the needed resources and support to the right people, and she accomplishes it all with the compassion you want in that position. The return on investment is so promising that we will give serious consideration to adding another specialist moving forward.”- Brent Houston, Assistant Superintendent of Finance/Business Operations- Shawnee Public Schools
“Wagoner Public Schools has maintained an exceptional partnership with OKDHS for School-Based Specialists for almost two decades. We were ecstatic to renew that partnership and welcome a School-Based Specialist for secondary level schools with the return of the program this school year. Our students receive essential support from a knowledgeable, compassionate, highly trained professional through this program. We are a Title 1 School and depend upon our School-Based Specialist to assist our students in meeting their basic needs.”-Ginger Luna, MSW, LCSWJunior/Senior Counselor- Wagoner High School.
