  • Curriculum and instruction,
  • Fraud/embezzlement,
  • Individuals with Disabilities Education Act,
  • Legal concerns,

“We are very excited to provide a quick, simple and convenient way for people to share their concerns and help improve the school environment for all involved,” State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister said.

The Oklahoma State Department of Education is seeking community feedback as they continue to evaluate issues and ensuring accountability of taxpayer resources.
