2018 Oklahoma Statutes
Title 70. Schools
§70-4515. Public hearing.
Prior to implementing a continuous school program in any school of the district, the school district's board of education shall consult in good faith in an effort to reach agreement with the employees of the school, with the parents of pupils who would be affected by the change, and with the community at large. Such consultation shall include at least one public hearing for which the board has given adequate notice to the employees and to the parents of pupils affected.
In school districts where a continuous school program is implemented in fewer than all of the schools maintained by the school district, the board of education of such a school district shall make every reasonable effort to assign employees who prefer the regular school schedule to schools of the same level retaining the regular school schedule.
The board of education of any school district operating pursuant to the provisions of this chapter shall divide the students of each selected school into as many groups as necessary to adequately accommodate a continuous school program so established and conducted. Students of the same family shall be placed in the same group unless one or more of such students is enrolled in a special education class or unless the parent or guardian of such students requests that the students be placed in different groups.
