Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt announced on Monday that all schools in his state are open after officials prioritized teacher vaccinations.
"I cast a vision in the very beginning," Stitt said during an appearance on Fox and Friends. "We want to be top 10 in vaccines administered, and we've hit that goal. We're actually No. 6 in the country in vaccines administered per capita, but I immediately said we've got to raise our teachers up on the list, right behind first responders. ... Every one of our schools [is] open in the state of Oklahoma."
The state's Department of Education released a "Return to Learn Oklahoma" framework for reopening schools last June in preparation for school reopenings, and several districts returned students to classrooms shortly thereafter. Elementary schools in Oklahoma City reopened in January, and Tulsa Public Schools welcomed students of all grades back into classrooms in February.
