OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma State Superintendent Janet Barresi is launching an initiative to provide teachers affected by this year's storms with a "wish list" of school supplies.

Barresi announced she is launching "Project Meet the Need" after hearing from teachers whose classrooms were damaged or destroyed by spring tornadoes, floods and other storms.

Barresi also is asking teachers, administrators or support staff that lost classroom supplies to notify her department, which is posting a list of needed items on its website.

Donations can also be brought to the State Department of Education's Oliver Hodge Building in the north Capitol complex from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The department plans to delivers supplies to teachers before the start of the school year.
