TRIAL COURT RULES SCHOOL FINANCE SYSTEM UNCONSTITUTIONAL

League City, Texas- The Clear Creek Independent School District is pleased that Judge John Dietz once again ruled that the current school finance system violates the requirements of the Texas Constitution.   Despite the actions of the 2013 Texas Legislature, the Court found the current funding system still does not suitably, adequately, or equitably provide the resources necessary to give all students a real opportunity to meet the state’s rising expectations.   The Court also found that the funding system does not provide local school districts and communities, like Clear Creek ISD, with meaningful discretion to set their property tax rates and provide local supplementation or enrichment above state requirements.

The decision today provides the Texas legislature with an opportunity to address the deficiencies in the public school funding system.  To read more about the school finance lawsuit, click here.
