2017 Rule Changes

Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) administrative rules are published in Title 210 of the Oklahoma Administrative Code.  

Click here to access the online version of the Oklahoma Administrative Code (OAC) on the Oklahoma Secretary of State's Office of Administrative Rules website.  To view the State Department of Education rules, select the blue box labeled "View Code" from the options at the left side of the screen, then scroll down and select the link for "Title 210 - State Department of Education."  (Please note that updates to the online OAC are not immediate, and the online content may not reflect the most recent amendments.  For OSDE rule changes that went into effect August 25, 2016, please see the 2016 Rules Archive.)

Agency rulemaking is governed by the Oklahoma Administrative Procedures Act (APA) at 75 O.S. § 250 et seq.  Notice documents required by the Oklahoma Administrative Procedures Act are published in the Oklahoma Register by the Oklahoma Secretary of State's Office of Administrative Rules (OAR).  Informational materials on the APA rulemaking process are available at the OAR website.  The public is invited to submit comments on proposed permanent rules during the open public comment periods via email at rules@sde.ok.gov.  The APA does not require a public comment period for emergency rules prior to adoption, but when possible the agency provides an opportunity for public comment on proposed emergency rules. 

After the close of the public comment period, proposed permanent rules are submitted to the State Board of Education for adoption.  Proposed permanent rules which have been adopted by the Board are submitted to the Legislature and Governor for review in accordance with the requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act.  

Please see below for information and updates regarding the status of administrative rules proposed for adoption by the State Board of Education.
