Voters Approve Ballot Measures
In November 2018, Frisco ISD voters approved two separate ballot propositions that will expand student opportunity and future-ready learning in the school district. Proposition A, the Tax Ratification Election, received the support of 58 percent of voters, while Proposition B, the bond election, received 61 percent.
The TRE will generate millions of dollars in additional revenue to address operating recommendations made by the Facilities and Programs Evaluation Committee, including smaller class sizes, expanded academic programs and increased student intervention. The $691 million bond package will provide funding for the construction of four new schools and renovations to existing facilities, as well as additional technology, security measures and more.
The election did not change the total tax rate for 2018, which remained at $1.44 per $100 valuation, two cents lower than the tax rate from 2012 to 2017. However, the TRE increased the portion of the tax rate that pays for day-to-day operations by 13 cents, from $1.04 to $1.17. A Board-adopted resolution also took effect to offset that increase, reducing the portion of the tax rate that pays off debt from $0.40 to $0.27 to ensure taxpayers were not impacted by the higher operations rate. The total tax rate of $1.44 reduced the number used to calculate a property owner’s total tax bill and provided relief to residents as property values continue to rise.
