HB 1650(1) (Deutschendorf/Robinson): Would establish -- subject to availability of funds -- a Virtual Internet School in Oklahoma Network (VISION) pilot program "to provide verifiable information on the advantages of web-based instructional programs" and to test "procedures and standards so that implementation of a virtual internet school network will progress smoothly." The State Department of Education would be the coordinating agency, and there would be a nine-member Virtual Internet School Pilot Program Coordinating Committee. The pilot program would involve nine public school districts, possibly more, from various areas of the state. Districts hoping to be selected would be required to have or to obtain, in addition to connection to a DS3 upgraded OneNet network site, some rather sophisticated routers and servers, internal service systems, and desktop equipment. The pilot program would involve the schools in two-way video conferencing and three other levels of communication that are less demanding in terms of bandwidth. Effective 7-1-99
