Defining Special Education in Oklahoma

Special education programs that provide resources and supports to children with identified disabilities have been mandatory in the United States since 1975. Moving from exclusionary policies to greater inclusion in the general classroom has significantly changed how these programs operate. Special education designations not only impact the kinds of resources available to students but also the amount of state funding a school district receives. Last updated: 7/29/2021

Educational institutions require these courses before the student can enroll in courses that count toward degree completion. Typically, these courses are charged directly to the student, not only stretching out the length of the degree program but also increasing cost. Last updated: 5/24/2021

Sinking Fund

The Sinking Fund receives local tax dollars upon voter approval. The fund’s purpose is to pay the district’s voted debts for capital improvements. This includes payments on voter-approved bonds for large-scale projects. The amount of bonds a district can seek is capped at 10% of the total valuation of the real property located in a district. The fund can also be used to pay for other district debts like those imposed by a court through a judgment. Last updated: 3/11/2021
