Charter School Told to Stop Off-site enrollment (Jul 28, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A virtual charter school set to open this fall is being told to stop enrolling students at three locations that the Oklahoma Department of Education says may violate state law.

Epic One on One Charter School is chartered through Graham Public Schools in Okfuskee County. It's enrolling students at locations in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Norman.

Education Department spokesman Damon Gardenhire says state law requires that a charter school be physically located in the district that grants the charter.

Epic founder David Chaney told The Oklahoman that the facilities are not schools — but are centers where students can access the curriculum on computers and Internet provided by Epic.

Charter schools are privately run but publicly funded. Epic's students will attend classes and get instruction almost exclusively online.
