Welcome to OASIS

OASIS MEMBERS:

 

Welcome to OASIS, an organization serving Oklahoma public schools that receive federal Impact Aid funds.  OASIS is a resource for those districts, providing information, partnering with other state and national organizations with a shared mission, and communicating with legislators in Washington to ensure that funding continues.

Districts receive Impact Aid funds to offset the loss of property taxes to the district, due to having federal property within the district that does not pay ad-valorem tax, or parents who work on federal land.

While Impact Aid has never been fully funded by the Federal government, districts receive a portion of what would otherwise be taxed on lands owned by federal entities such as military bases, Indian land, and in some cases national parks and Corp of Engineer land.

Oklahoma has more school districts receiving Impact Aid funds than any other state and it is vital that these funds continue to provide the services that our children deserve. 

If you have questions, would like more information about OASIS activities or membership, contact Executive Director Billie Jordan.
