GISD Trustees unanimously calls for Voter-Approval Tax Rate Election

Garland ISD’s Board of Trustees is continuing our tradition of innovation with a unique Voter-Approval Tax Rate Election (VATRE) that, if approved, will generate additional funds from the state while also lowering the 2020-21 property tax rate by nearly 5 cents. Trustees unanimously called the VATRE Aug. 11, and it will be included on the upcoming November ballot.
