In Oklahoma, there are three state statutes that provide requirements for school district websites. Schools/districts are required to have the following items posted on their websites:
Schools are required to post their board meeting dates, times and locations on their website. We recommend posting this information on a “Board of Education” page of your website along with your meeting agendas (see below).
Agendas can be posted solely at the main or “principal” office (or the location of board meetings if no principal office exists). This means agendas do not have to be posted online. See #9 referenced here.
However, as a courtesy to your parents and community, we recommend posting the agendas on your Board of Education page.
Schools are required to post a list of their board members on their website. We recommend posting this on your Board of Education page along with the position each member holds.
Starting with the 2019-2020 school year, the state provides two options for reporting expenditures. Districts can provide a link to OCAS as stated in option one below, or they have to provide all 9 items listed under subsection C of 70 O.S. § 5-135.4 (option two below).
According to the School District Transparency Act, school districts are required to either post a link to OCAS or post all items listed under Section C of the act (see option two below). We recommend you post a link to your OCAS site. You can go to this link and then click on your school and copy the address and then place it on your “Documents” or “Required Postings” page. NOTE: The link has to be on the home page or one click away from the home page. Any link in your main navigation would qualify as one click away.
If you don’t put a link to OCAS (see Option one above), your website must contain the following:
Schools are required to post a link to their policy regarding bullying. Once again, we recommend posting this on your “Documents” or “Required Postings” page.
If you have any additional questions about your website in general or about these requirements, reach out to the tech team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
