OKLAHOMA CITY – Rep. Rhonda Baker, R-Yukon, will examine potential updates to Oklahoma's graduation requirements and student pathways to meeting those requirements in an upcoming interim study before the House Common Education Committee, which she chairs.

IS23-071 is scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 9, in Room 206 at the State Capitol, 2300 N Lincoln Blvd.

"We know our children and young adults are some of our state’s greatest assets, and we must bring all parties to the table to discuss their ever-changing educational needs as we seek to better prepare students for the evolving job market,” Baker said. "This study will bring together leaders in K-12, CareerTech, higher education and workforce development to review the educational standards of other states and determine the steps Oklahoma needs to take to give our students a world-class education."

Baker said school leaders have expressed a great deal of support in studying this issue.

"I'm looking forward to a very robust discussion," she said
