Rockwall ISD Board approves 2017-2018 budget

(ROCKWALL, TX – June 28, 2017) At Monday night’s School Board meeting, the Rockwall ISD Board of Trustees approved the 2017-2018 budget. The Board adopted a general fund budget of approximately $123 million that included additional staffing and operational cost of opening Linda Lyon Elementary, a 2% salary increase for employees, additional staff positions for growth, and also savings from absorbed positions.

While the budget is now adopted, the tax rate will not be set until the August board meeting, after certified taxable values are received in late July. Our School Board and Administration worked very hard this budget planning season to look for efficiencies and yet address the district’s needs. We are pleased with the budget that was adopted and will continue to look for additional efficiencies.
