DISD Revenue Expected to jump More Than $3 Million

Decatur ISD

By Richard Greene | Published Saturday, May 12, 2018

Based on preliminary tax values and the projected increased enrollment, Decatur ISD is expecting an increase of $3.3 million in revenue for the 2018-19 fiscal year.

Deputy Superintendent Cindy Tatum informed the board of the revenue projections Monday night.

The district’s preliminary tax roll from the Wise County Appraisal District showed a gain of $211.7 million to $2.027 billion from last year’s certified total of $1.815 billion. With a 98 percent collection rate, the district would bring in $21.874 million, $2.158 million more than last year’s $19.716 million.

Plugging in a projected enrollment of 3,471 with an average daily attendance of 3,300 and weighted average daily attendance of 4,441, the district is anticipating an increase of $1.226 million in state funding to $7.922 million.

The preliminary total revenue is $30.896 million.

“It’s a good place to start when we start thinking about compensation and district needs,” said Decatur ISD Superintendent Judi Whitis. “It’s super conservative. If [revenue] comes in higher, that’s good. It’s much safer to be conservative.”

In other business, the board extended a contract to Amber Crissey to serve as the director of secondary education. Crissey is currently the executive director of curriculum and instruction for White Settlement ISD.

Whitis said she will be focused on enhancing the district’s curriculum and academics. She will be handling some of the duties of former Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Deidre Parish.
