WFISD tax rate remains the same

WICHITA FALLS - If you live inside the Wichita Falls school district, you won't be seeing a tax increase.
 
Tonight, the school board voted to keep the tax rate the same as it was last year at $1.23 per $100 valuation.
 
The board also signed off on the 2017-2018 budget of a little over 110 million dollars,  which is about a million-dollar less than the previous year.
 
Superintendent Micheal Kuhrt said the budget decrease is because the district doesn't have capital improvements items like adding turf to the Sunrise Optimist softball field and Hoskins baseball field like it did last year.
 
Kuhrt added that the board is taking the budget they are given and doing the best to stay within that budget.
 
"The budget we had is a very sound budget, it's a budget we can live within and we have the money we need to have to do what we need to do, there's just not any extra," Kuhrt said.
 
In addition to the budget, Kurth said the career education center welcomed over twelve hundred students last Wednesday and the campus is at a 96 percent completion rate.
