Board Discusses Budget, Tax Election
At their meeting on May 7, RISD trustees heard recommendations for the 2018-19 operating budget, including funding needs for additional special education teachers, along with additional police officers and security staff. Trustees discussed a cost of living increase for teachers and staff, and costs to bring student transportation services in house after the dissolution of former bus service provider Dallas County Schools last fall.

Trustees again discussed RISD's revenue limitations under the Texas school finance system, where the ongoing benefit of increased school tax revenue collected from rising property values is taken by the state of Texas and used for expenses unrelated to public education. In addition, as property values rise, the amount of funding the state provides to RISD goes down, shifting more of the burden for public schools onto district taxpayers. The state system severely penalizes districts like RISD that have kept operating tax rates low for an extended period of time.

Based on recommendations from RISD's strategic planning process, Dr. Stone recommended that trustees consider calling a tax ratification election (TRE), this September, asking RISD voters to consider raising the operating tax rate up to an additional 13 cents, to $1.17, beginning with the new fiscal year.
