Thanks to the hard work of teachers, students and health professionals, Louisiana has been able to keep schools safe and open during the last two years of the pandemic. While the K-12 COVID testing team is still available to provide COVID-19 related resources and services to all Louisiana schools, our program is changing for the 2023/2024 school year.
After successfully incentivizing approximately 40,000 staff and students and offering stipends to nearly 500 great educational institutions, Safer Smarter Schools is retiring its stipend and incentive program.
If you would like more information on how to get access to covid testing materials or request testing teams to visit your school-based health center, please contact COVIDTesting@la.gov.History of the Program For Covid Coordinators
