Recapture of Local Property Tax Revenue
Were you unable to join us at the PTO meeting last Thursday? Houston ISD is considered a property-wealthy district. As property value has increased, Houston ISD has received less funding for public education from the state. Now, HISD is expected to send $162M to the state to fund public education in 2017, and is estimated to pay more than $1B over the next four years. You can learn more about the school finance system and Recapture by watching the video on the HISD website at http://www.houstonisd.org/recapture.
In November, you will find an item on your ballot regarding the recapture of $162M in local tax revenue by the state. Learn more and make your wish known. Share the link on social media with friends and family.
Charge Into the Color
Our first ever color run will be held during school the morning of Oct 11 to support our Fitness Track fundraising efforts. We hope you join the fun and CHARGE INTO THE COLOR!
