WFISD School Budget

Despite some grim news earlier this summer, the Wichita Falls Independent School District is looking to enter the school year with a balanced budget.

Last month, the school board worked to correct the more than $300,000 projected shortfall.

They've made the corrections and are slated to adopt the budget on Monday.

At Monday's school board meeting, members decided to set a public hearing on the school tax rate.

It's set for next Monday at 5:30 p.m. at the Education Center.

The tax rate is the same as last year at a $1.20 per every $100 of property valuation.
