After-School Clubs and Organizations
The Okemos Education Foundation funds extra-curricular student clubs and organizations in every building and at every grade level in the district. These clubs provide important opportunities for our students to explore new interests, develop leadership skills, and interact with peers in a safe environment. Many graduates agree that it is these extra-curricular experiences that shaped their happiest school memories.

OEF-Funded Clubs: FAQ
How does the OEF decide which clubs are offered?
We don't. The list of which clubs will be offered each year is determined by the administrative team in each building. The OEF simply decides how much funding it is able to contribute to the district in support of clubs, and the district determines which clubs it will offer.
If the OEF is funding my student's club, then why am I asked to pay a fee?
The funding that the OEF provides for clubs covers only the stipend and related benefits to pay the clubs' faculty advisors. It does not cover supplies, field trips, or other related expenses.
