Full-time virtual charter schools and supplemental online courses is an evolving field of education that has created new learning opportunities for Oklahoma students. Statewide, Oklahoma provides six school options through a full-time online learning format and opportunities to access supplemental online courses while enrolled in a traditional school setting.
Virtual Charter Schools
Oklahoma has six virtual charter schools authorized by the Statewide Virtual Charter School Board. These schools are full-time public education options delivering instruction through an online format.
OK Supplemental Online Course Program
Oklahoma statute 70-1-111 makes supplemental learning opportunities available to local school district students using online technology in a nontraditional classroom setting, (i.e., inside or outside of public school site locations). The Oklahoma Supplemental Online Course Program (OSOCP) establishes a framework for districts to offer supplementary online courses to students in their district. As the title suggests, the OSOCP does not replace traditional schooling—rather, it supplements it.
