Oklahoma State Board of Education adopts new rules to keep 4-day school weeks

OKLAHOMA CITY (KXII) - The Oklahoma State Board of Education has adopted new rules that would make it harder for Oklahoma schools to keep a four-day school week.

For elementary and middle schools to maintain a four-day school week, they would need at least a C grade in academic growth for Math and English on their state report cards.

High schools would be required to score a C or higher in overall academic achievement and post-secondary opportunities. They would also need to maintain an 82 percent graduate rate.

The rules are now headed to the state capitol for lawmakers to consider.
