THE 87TH LEGISLATIVE SESSION BEGAN JANUARY 12

VIRTUAL RALLY DAY FEBRUARY 22ND

View 86th Legislative Session Wraps

SBISD recapture dollars are estimated to be $37M this year – in 2019, it was over $84M! This is a direct effect of HB3.
SBISD is also proposing a TAX RATE DECREASE – another direct effect of HB3. The more the state funds public education, the more SBISD tax dollars stay with SBISD. Public school funding is by no means ‘fixed’ with HB3, as it's only funded for 2 years. And we still have a long way to climb to even be in the top half of the nation in funding our public schools.
 
State funding of our schools is tied to attendance. Overall attendance across the state has decreased because of the pandemic. The State agreed to ignore this decrease for the first 18 weeks of school and fully fund our schools. HOWEVER, they have not extended this "hold harmless" beyond those first 18 weeks. As of right now, the Governor (or the TEA) has not assured ISD's of their full funding for the year (20-21) as funding in Texas is tied to attendance.  SBISD could lose more than $2.5M THIS SCHOOL YEARTexas public schools must be held harmless in this instance.
