Oklahoma will take a greater hand in managing the seven worst-performing schools in the state, including three in the Oklahoma City area.

The list of seven, plus general information about what an improvement process might look like for these schools, was presented to the state Education Board at its meeting Thursday.

Karl Springer, superintendent for Oklahoma City Public Schools, said an initial concern that the state would venture to take over underperforming schools was softened by the announcement.
