Administrator's Handbook for Elementary, Middle, Junior High and High Schools. Regulations and Criteria for Accrediting and Improving the Schools of Oklahoma. Bulletin No. 113-Y.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City. Div. of Instruction.
This administrator handbook begins with statements summarizing Oklahoma's Division of Instruction and the guiding principles of education at the state's elementary and secondary levels. Following an outline of State Board of Education policies, the handbook lists various general regulations and progress criteria for the state as a whole. Subsequent descriptions of specific school regulations and progress criteria for elementary, middle, and junior high schools include attention to such areas as administration and organization, admissions, kindergarten, library-media, subject requirements, teacher load, and the junior high school honor society. The following, more lengthy, section on high school regulations and progress criteria covers many of the same areas as well as correspondence credit, minor assignment requirements, subject and graduation requirements, summer high schools, vocational and technical education, and the high school honor society. The handbook concludes with a section on adult basic education regulations and a final "Miscellaneous" section containing information in nine different areas, including the accreditation of elementary schools in high school and nonhigh-school districts (as well as of junior, senior, and vocational-technical schools), a glossary of terms, a list of important dates, perfect attendance and reading certificates, and a time schedule for reports.
