OKLAHOMA: Number of online charter schools in Oklahoma may grow

online-learningOKLAHOMA CITY -— While other states have taken action to prevent them from opening to the public, the number of online charter schools is set to grow significantly in Oklahoma.

The state Department of Education has provided several million dollars to the state’s two online charter schools, despite questions about the effectiveness of such institutions.

Now three additional online charter schools want to join the ranks in Oklahoma as the state Board of Education investigates whether one of the two existing schools might have misrepresented how many full-time students are enrolled.

Epic One on One charter school, whose practices are being looked into by the Education Department, will receive more than $10 million in state funds this school year. Sponsored by Graham Public Schools near Weleetka, it was founded in 2011 and has about 3,000 enrolled students, Education Department records show.
