Financial information

We have a long-standing commitment to careful management of taxpayer money to make every dollar count. This commitment is reflected in the Aaa and AA+ bond ratings assigned by Moody’s and Fitch, respectively. This places Garland among an elite group of Texas school districts.

Do you know where your tax dollars go?

Property values went up, so schools got more money, right? Wrong. Texas public schools DO NOT receive all added revenue from increased taxes due to property value increases.
