The Oklahoma Hazard Mitigation Plan has been approved by FEMA, pending adoption by Cleveland County commissioners and the governing councils and board of each jurisdiction participating in the plan.
“In the out-years of these recent disasters, money will continue to flow,” Grizzle said of the passing of the Oklahoma Hazard Mitigation Plan. “It identifies all hazards that all jurisdictions think they’d be prone to, and the hazards themselves create projects that the plan can fund.”
Beth Kahn, health services coordinator, provided information about recent 2013 Oklahoma Certified Healthy Business and School Awards. Norman Public Schools was given a Certified Healthy Business Award for the third year in a row.
Kahn said this year, the district received an excellent rating, which is the highest a business can obtain. The award is based on several factors such as health and nutrition, physical opportunities for employees, tobacco-free environments, wellness policies and more.
Lastly, the board listened to an update about NPS Technology Plan 2014-2017 by Kathryn Lewis, media services and instructional technology director.
