The Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) will live stream all regularly scheduled State Board of Education (SBE) meetings beginning this Thursday, January 25, at 9:30 a.m. Previously, OSDE uploaded audio files from each board meeting via iTunes on the State Board of Education web page located on sde.ok.gov.
The transition from iTunes audio files to full streaming capabilities will allow OSDE and the SBE to conduct business with greater transparency by allowing the general public to follow Board discussions in real time.
“By live streaming board meetings, we hope to make the discussion around education in Oklahoma more accessible to everyone, not just those who can make the trip to Oklahoma City each month,” said Joy Hofmeister, State Superintendent of Public Instruction. “OSDE and the Board are committed to transparency. We’re looking forward to engaging with stakeholders across the state in a new way.”
Livestream broadcasts of SBE meetings can be accessed on the OSDE website here.
