Oakland Unified Gets Grant To Improve Student Health

OAKLAND (KCBS) - The federal government is awarding $423,000 in grant money to the Oakland Unified School District. The funds will be used to improve student health record management and clinical services at Oakland Tech.

"Oakland Tech has one of the most modest health centers in our large, comprehensive high schools. And this will help us greatly expand the level of service they can provide. So it's a big win for the students and staff there at Oakland Tech," boasted OUSD spokesman Troy Flint.

KCBS' Bob Melrose Reports:

OUSD is the only school district in Northern California to receive such a grant, from the Federal Health Resources and Services Administration.
