Agency rulemaking is governed by the Oklahoma Administrative Procedures Act at 75 O.S. § 250 et seq.  Notice documents required by the Oklahoma Administrative Procedures Act are published in the Oklahoma Register by the Oklahoma Secretary of State's Office of Administrative Rules (OAR).  Informational materials on the APA rulemaking process are available at the OAR website.  The public is invited to submit comments on proposed permanent rules during the open public comment periods via email at rules@sde.ok.gov.  The APA does not require a public comment period for emergency rules prior to adoption. 

After close of the public comment period, proposed permanent rules are submitted to the State Board of Education (or, in the case of rules governing full-time statewide virtual charter schools, the Statewide Virtual Charter School Board) for adoption.  Proposed permanent rules which have been adopted by the Board are submitted to the Legislature and Governor for review in accordance with the requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act.
