Providing quality online learning experiences for students in Oklahoma’s schools is a collaborative effort between the Oklahoma State Department of Education, the Statewide Virtual Charter School Board, and the local school district. These agencies have complementary responsibilities regarding online instruction.
The State Department of Education establishes policies and guidelines for the schools’ implementation of the Oklahoma Supplemental Online Course Program. Such policies can be found in Oklahoma Administrative Code (Title 210: 15-34).
The SVCSB has three responsibilities related to the OSOCP. They are to (1) make publicly available a list of supplemental online courses, (2) review and certify online courses to ensure they are high-quality options aligned to subject matter standards adopted by the state and (3) facilitate negotiation of state contracts with online course providers to offer a state rate price to school districts for supplemental online courses. Administrative rules governing these responsibilities can be found in Oklahoma Administrative Code (Title 777: 15-1).
The Oklahoma Online Course Catalog contains a list of courses made available by approved course providers with a registered state contract with the State of Oklahoma. In addition to listing available courses and associated prices, the OOCC displays the quality review scores for each course, as well as the rate of successful completion. Courses certified by the SVCSB remain so for five years. Additional courses may be added to the OOCC annually by state approved vendors.
If you are an online course provider and would like to learn more about becoming a registered vendor with the state of Oklahoma, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
