    SB0193, by Sen. Dewayne Pemberton, R-Muskogee and Rep. Mark McBride, R-Moore, modifies the circumstances under which accreditation cannot be withdrawn or denied for failure to meet certain media program standards. The bill prohibits accreditation from being withdrawn once state per-pupil expenditures are equal to or more than the regional average expenditure per pupil in average daily attendance in public elementary and secondary schools for the most current year for which data is available, as reported by the National Center for Education Statistics annually in the Digest of Education Statistics and funds are provided. The bill requires that the regional average expenditure consist of the current expenditures per pupil in average daily attendance in public elementary and secondary schools in unadjusted dollars for the following states: Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico and Texas. The bill also requires the State Board of Education by Jan. 1 of each year to report whether the expenditure level has been reached based on information reported annually in the Digest of Education Statistics by the National Center for Education Statistics. The bill also modifies the circumstances under which the State Board of Education cannot assess a financial penalty against any school district which is given a deficiency in accreditation status during any fiscal year by applying the same standard. The bill modifies when the State Board of Education's ability to exempt all school districts from or waive any policy, rule or law which requires school districts to form, convene, or participate in any advisory council or committee, including but not limited to the requirement to convene an advisory council when preparing the school improvement plan, ceases to be effective by applying the same standard. The bill also removes the ability for the requirement for the requirement that school districts not be required to appoint a local textbook committee, adopt textbooks, submit a textbook plan, or expend money on the purchase of textbooks during any fiscal year by applying the same standard.

It requires school districts seeking to participate in the pilot program to submit application to the Department. It provides eligibility criteria. The bill establishes requirements for programs to be offered via the program. It requires the Department to ensure that providers approved to participate allow teacher candidates to demonstrate pedagogy and content standard proficiency in school-based programs and through other nontraditional means. It allows the Department to suspend or revoke the approval of the provider if it determines that the provider fails to meet or is deficient in any of the requirements after providing notification of the deficiencies and an opportunity to remedy the deficiencies. It requires a teacher candidate that completes a program offered by an approved provider to be eligible for certification, provided they pass the general education and subject area portions of the competency examination in the area of specialization for which certification is sought. It requires a provider to submit a report to the Department after one year of operation showing the percentage of teacher candidates who have completed the program and who have successfully completed or who have failed the competency examination for certification. It requires the State Board of Education to promulgate rules. (Amended by House, Amended by Senate, Committee Substitute)

    SB0471, by Sen. Tom Dugger, R-Stillwater and Rep. John Talley, R-Stillwater, creates the Oklahoma Public Safety Protection District Act. The bill permits the governing body of a municipality to initiate the creation of a public safety protection district by the adoption of a resolution calling for the question to be placed before the registered voters of the municipality of whether to organize a public safety protection district. The bill requires the resolution be submitted to the registered voters of the municipality at the next general election. It requires a public safety protection district include all territory located within the municipality. It requires management of the public safety protection district, as well as management of any employee hired from district funds, be vested within the existing administration of the municipal government that created the district, including budgetary oversight. It deems a public safety protection district a political subdivision of the state. It requires the costs of an election to establish a district be paid by the municipality in the proportions determined by the county election board conducting the special election. It requires the election to determine whether a district will be established, and the notice of the election, be conducted in the same manner as other municipal questions which are submitted to the electorate of the municipality. It establishes additional notice requirements. It requires the public safety protection district election be conducted in accordance with the general election laws of the state and requires the regular election officials be in charge at the usual polling place of each regular precinct, or part of a precinct, which includes lands within the boundaries of the municipality. The bill requires the governing body of the municipality, by adoption of an ordinance or resolution or both an ordinance and resolution if the proposition is approved by 60 percent of voters, to declare the public safety protection district established.
