Funding

Support an adequate, equitable, and sustainable school finance system that provides for the education of the whole child and addresses:

  • the cost of education index that includes adjustments for today’s learning standards and expectations, inflation, regional cost of living, and appropriate weights for types of students served;

  • the impact of losing locally generated M&O revenue from growth in property values and “taxparency” regarding how the state uses those additional funds – www.taxparencytexas.org;

  • an updated formula for transportation funding; and

  • the financial consequences of loss of ASATR funding.

Oppose any form of diverting public tax dollars to any system of private education, whether it be in the form of tax credit scholarships, education savings accounts, entitlements or vouchers whereby the recipient of public tax dollars are not held to the same rules, regulations and requirements as any other Texas public ISD. Any non-public education recipients of public/taxpayer funds should be under the same laws, mandates and requirements as Texas public schools. Charter schools should also be under the same laws and accountability standards as traditional public schools if they are to continue receiving funding.

Support adequate funding for Instructional Materials Allotment, Instructional Facilities Allotment, New Instructional Facilities Allotment, and the Existing Debt Allotment.

Advocate for protecting defined benefit pension for public school employees and increased state funding to offset rising health care costs associated with the state programs of TRSActiveCare and TRSCare.

Assessment and Accountability

Support a rating system that eliminates the use of letter grades and that values student growth and achievement over performance on standardized, high stakes testing.

Support reduced emphasis on testing and a reduction in the number, length and frequency of statewide testing.

Local Control/Governance

Support providing districts flexibility in lowering and raising tax rates within a voter approved limit and in utilizing tax rate/revenue capacity interchangeably within the I&S and M&O tax rates.

Oppose restricting current flexibility for innovation provided to school districts through the Districts of Innovation designation, particularly as it relates to the school calendar.
