Wealthiest schools receive no lottery, gaming revenue

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Eight of Oklahoma's wealthiest public school districts receive no lottery or gaming revenue and must rely on local revenue to pay for teacher pay raises and full-day kindergarten.

The school districts are considered independently wealthy from local property taxes and oil and gas production.

Several others saw their state aid reduced this year, meaning their share of $75-million allocated to common education from lottery and gaming revenue is minimal.

Each of the districts are tiny and in a rural county. They are Sweetwater in Roger Mills County; Plainview in Cimarron County; Straight in Texas County; Balko in Beaver County; Wakita in Grant County; Frontier in Noble County; Cleora in Delaware County; and Kiowa in Pittsburg County.
