The Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration asked policymakers Wednesday to place stricter requirements on virtual charter schools during an interim study evaluating the effectiveness of Oklahoma public charter schools (H14-069).

Ryan Owen, counsel for CCOSA, presented a list of recommendations to the House Common Education Committee, which included stricter accountability and reporting requirements and a moratorium on enrollment into these virtual charters until efficacy of these schools can be proven.
