Why, Why Now: New Video Explains FWISD’s November Tax Rate Election

In a new video, Superintendent Kent P. Scribner answers essential questions about the Fort Worth ISD Voter-Approval Tax Ratification Election (TRE) on November 3. He explains that, if approved, the TRE will provide funds for:

  • Increased teacher salaries to attract and retain top educators
  • Expanded safety, health, and security on campuses, including more Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Chromebooks, hot spots and reliable connectivity to the internet for all students

Also in the video, you’ll hear from FWISD Chief Financial Officer Michael Ball and learn how the TRE, if approved by voters, would generate $44 million for the District plus another $22 million from the State. He also breaks down what the TRE would mean for homeowners.

Please mark your calendars for:

  • Early Voting – October 13 – 30.
  • Election Day – Tuesday, November 3.
