State Appropriated Financial Support of Public Schools

The State Aid office is responsible for the state education funding formula, school activity funds and grants distribution.

The office also works in the implementation of “New” funding legislation and collecting all required data from schools, state agencies, and SDE departments to calculate equitable funding for distribution to all public schools and charters. We strive to educate our clientele with accurate data for the financial needs of Oklahoma public schools and charters.
