Supplemental Oklahoma Rules for K-12 Online Courses

In late December 2011 I received an email about draft rules written by our Oklahoma State Department of Education which cover online courses for K-12 students. This document is available as a PDF from the Oklahoma SDE, and I’ve archived a copy too. Emergency rules regarding online courses for K-12 students in Oklahoma public schools were rescinded in November 2011.

While the new draft rules are available on the SDE website, I can’t find a link to submit “public comments” on either the Oklahoma SDE News Blog site (, the old SDE homepage or the new one. If you know where information is posted about submitting public comments on these draft rules please let me know by leaving a comment. The document itself does not provide any guidance or contact info for people wanting to submit public comments.

I haven’t read through these in detail but will in upcoming days. I’ll probably submit “a public comment” if I can learn where and how to do so.

UPDATE: Eric Hileman let me know comments can be submitted via email to

UPDATE2: The following link provides instructions about submitting public comments for this proposed rule change: The published impact statement for this rule change is also worth reading.

Any news from the jungle?
