At the request of a local community group, Granger Meador, the district's Exec. Dir. of Technology & Communications, prepared an overview of the school funding mechanisms in Oklahoma. He states, "This document provides an overview of how public schools are funded in Oklahoma, including their reliance on a funding formula to promote vertical equity, and how those funding mechanisms evolved."

Other presentations on school funding

In the spring of 2018 Meador also presented to the Arvest Financial Forum about the current state of school funding. Below is an updated version of that slideshow, reflecting the possibility that a veto referendum could delay teacher raises by up to a year and thus prolong and probably worsen the critical teacher shortage even if voters rejected the attempt to scuttle new taxes to fund teacher raises.
