ENID, Okla. (AP) - The Enid Public Schools Board of Education has voted to allow the district to join other schools in legal action over lost state aid.

The Enid News & Eagle ( ) reports that the lawsuit stems from an admission that the state miscalculated the school funding formula for more than 20 years. Adjustments to the formula were made, and more than $16.3 million in state aid was allocated among hundreds of school districts in February, producing a windfall for some districts and an unforeseen loss for others.

School districts now claiming disfavor, including Ponca City, Western Heights and Oklahoma City, responded with legal action against the state.

State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister said at the time that that recalculations were done as accurately and quickly as possible.
