When property values go up, your property taxes increase and the schools get more money, right? Wrong. Do you know where your tax dollars go?
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.
We are committed to sharing transparent financial information in a way that is clear and meaningful to our community. Our goal is to make the information easily accessible and understandable by providing financial records, summaries, graphs and other relevant financial data. See the following pages to learn more:
