OESE Welcomes Two New Offices: Safe & Healthy Students and School Turnaround

Two new program offices are now a part of the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education: the Office of Safe & Healthy Students (OSHS) and the Office of School Turnaround (OST).

The OSHS, formerly known as the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, administers programs that help ensure safe and healthy learning environments for students, including those that deal with safe and supportive schools; health, mental health, environmental health, and physical education; drug-violence prevention; character and civic education; and homeland security, emergency management, and school programs.

The OST is charged with providing financial assistance and other support, including through the administration of the School Improvement Grants (SIG) program, for state and district efforts to turn around the lowest-performing five percent of schools in each state.

Learn more about these two program offices by visiting their websites, which can be accessed via the links to the right or on OESE’s homepage.
