Oklahoma's state board of education decided Friday to place Western Heights Public Schools on probation.

The board made the decision unanimously.

During the 90-day probationary period, the board said Western Heights Public Schools must take "corrective action" or face a loss of accreditation.

Board members said they are acting on the numerous complaints that came from district employees and parents. The district's issues include, but are not limited to, dismal community relations, a lack of in-person instruction and a lack of available benefits for staff members.

Western Heights administration was asked to appear during Friday's meeting, but no one representing the district joined the special board meeting.
