HISD May Get Needed Funds

Published on April 25, 2013 by Larry Crippen

HISD may get needed money out of a portion of Texas’ Rainy Day Fund. Just this week state senators okayed a deal that would move $5.7 billion dollars from the fund and give it to schools, and water and transportation projects.

Eight-hundred-million would go to public education. Members of the Texas Senate also say an extra $1.4 billion dollars would go to schools because of an unexpected rise in property evaluations.

HISD Superintendent Dr. Steve Johnson talked about what the funds could mean to HISD at last week’s Board of Trustees session . . . .


Dr. Johnson has said this is only a one-time disbursement. So, it would not allow him to start raises for teachers.

Ultimately, voters will decide in an amendment vote in November.
