School-Based Services

Program Overview

The School-Based Services Program is a contractual and collaborative partnership between Oklahoma Human Services and local school districts. 

Through the partnership, a School-Based Specialist (SBS) is placed in the school with the dedicated purpose of providing a human service connection and support to the children and families served by the school, as well as the school’s teachers and administrators. 
The SBS connects students and their families to local and state resources that can offer help and hope for the family. This compassionate and professional support helps students navigate out-of-classroom obstacles that would affect their success in the classroom and allows teachers to focus on teaching. The SBS makes a significant impact on the well-being of their communities, improving outcomes and reducing risk factors for the students and families they serve.
