Oklahoma public and charter schools will get $2.04 billion in state aid next year, but many districts will see a decline in their allocations. The state provides funding to local schools based on a complex formula that considers enrollment growth or decline, and the amount of local funds available through the district’s property tax.

State school superintendent Sandy Garrett said last week that 325 school districts will get more money but 224 will get less. She said 177 districts would see state allocations drop because their enrollments declined.
