FDISD adopts annual budget on the early adoption cycle, meaning that the budgets are adopted prior to setting the tax rate. Adopted Budgets, and Proposed Budgets are listed here. Budgets are, necessarily, the best estimates that the district has during the summers prior to a school year on both revenues and expenses. Revenues include locally collected taxes (currently at the $1.17 rate), state funds (designated bi-annually based on several factors, with enrollments and attendance the largest driving factors), and federal funds (Title programs).
The FDISD Board adopts the budgets listing only locally raised funds and state funding.
NOTICE: ESSER III funds, broken into two different allocations (part 1 and part 2) will be used to supplant local funds for salaries of teaching staff only. Part 1 funds will be used for teaching staff salaries at the elementary campus for the 2020-2021 school year, with the part 2 funds also used for elementary campus teaching staff salaries for the 2021-2022 school year. The use of these funds was determined via consultation with staff and the Board of Trustees. The remainder of the ESSER III, part 2 funds will be used to meet the requirement for counseling and remediation for the 2022-2023 school year.
