Puzzled, no matter how it is calculate why is FISD be so special that 970 other school districts have lower tax rates. I will say it again “970 other school districts” have lower tax rates and these districts are not just your ... More ›

Be Careful, you don't judge a school by comparing tax rates with its neighbors. Judge a school district for what it produces. All of my children graduated from FISD, and all of them graduated from college, and all of them ... More ›

I fought against the school bond too, but unfortunately we were outvoted. I believe we are on the same page - we just keep gettin taxed more and getting less for our money. I agree that it is time for the signs to come down ... More ›

Really Puzzled ? Since you don’t know how to do simple math, let me explain it to you. If I have a house that costs $100,000, the taxes are higher in the districts that have a higher tax rate. For example, FISD is tax rate ... More ›

And I just called about the exemptions and there are none offered. So every person in FISD has reason to voice concern on what happens with the district.

For all of you complainer, here is a lesson in school finance. Tax rates are different because the property values/student population ratios are different in each district. The rapidity of student growth also impacts tax rates ... More ›

If there's an exemption I'm not aware of that, which is why I was voicing an opinion. To tell me I can't voice an opinion over a School district that my taxes are going to is rather idiotic. Fork over $3000 for ISD a year, ... More ›
