New transparency reporting requirements for virtual charter schools advance to state Senate
One of the few surviving measures aimed at adding restrictions for virtual charter schools sailed through the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Wednesday morning.
House Bill 1395 by Rep. Sheila Dills, R-Tulsa, received bipartisan support in a 95-0 vote.
“This bill essentially holds virtual charter schools to the same reporting and accountability standards as public schools,” Dills said in a written statement. “We need to have the same transparency requirements of all schools receiving taxpayer dollars, regardless of what type of school they are.”
