OKLAHOMA CITY - An effort to keep felons out of Oklahoma schools is making its way through the State Capitol.

The measure will directly impact volunteers who already undergo a background check to help out at their child's school.

Officials said fingerprints may soon be a requirement as well.

However, each school district will have the option of deciding who must undergo a background check as well as who pays for it.
