OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma schools are receiving their allocation for the new fiscal year, and districts are receiving an increase of about $38 per student.

The state Department of Education announced Wednesday it has released its allocations to school districts for the 2015 fiscal year.

The initial allocation is $3,077 per student, compared to $3,039 last year.

A budget agreement reached between Gov. Mary Fallin and the Oklahoma Legislature this year resulted in an $80 million increase in funding for common education.

State education officials say the total state appropriation to the per-pupil funding formula this year was nearly $1.9 billion.
