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.
With the 85th session of the Texas Legislature underway, Trustees approved five Legislative Priorities during the Monday, February 13, 2017, work session. They are calling for adequate, equitable school district funding, increased support for student performance, a clear, growth-focused accountability system, a strong, viable Texas Teacher Retirement System, and flexibility for school districts. The board will share these priorities with state legislators in Austin.
