10  Texas is 43 rd in expenditures per student  Texas spends $8350/student  This is $1159 (12%) less than the national average of $9509/student (  Texas poverty rate is 56% above the national average  Texas’ percentage of students on free/reduced lunches is 15% above the national average  Texas’ percentage of English language learners is 88% above the national average  Texas ranks 50 th in state expenditures per resident Does Texas spend too much?

11 Are public schools inefficient?

12 What happened to State Revenue? What changed?

13  2006 Reduction in real estate taxes took 1/3 of school finance revenue out of the system  2006 law took all of the property wealth growth out of the education system & moved it to the state’s general fund.  Texas Franchise Tax did not generate enough new tax revenue to replace the loss in R/E taxes.  The legislature supplanted billions in education funding with one-time stimulus funds in 2009-10.  Oil & gas tax income to the state has been dropping for decades. Revenue Changes

14  This is NOT a cost problem.  This is a revenue problem.  What are we doing about it?  Educating community and staff  Advocating with legislators  Preparing a variety of budget cutting scenarios  What can you do about it?  Send a clearly different message to legislators Conclusion

15  Message: Return local control back to the communities that own the schools.  Create a new funding system  Mandated dependence upon state funding makes it difficult to maintain community’s expectations and impossible to generate local revenue to support schools. (Less than 7% of funding is controlled locally.)  Give communities the chance to choose to pay more and use all of it locally to have more. Solution

What does it mean?

29  Creating Schools of Choice (i.e. academies) that will be based upon either a unique content focus and/or a different learning style.  The mission of Plano ISD academies is to engage students in a rigorous, distinct project-based curriculum, inspiring creativity and empowering them to collaborate and compete globally.  Leveraging the lessons learned from these Schools of Choice into the traditional system What are we doing to innovate?
