GCISD Lowers Property Tax Rate

ANALYSIS: Why Rising Property Values Don't Lower School Taxes

The current school finance system uses a mixture of local and state sources. In GCISD, local funds come primarily from property taxes. State funds include a complex combination of general revenue, recapture and lottery proceeds. With the current system, it does not mean overall school funding increases when local property values increase and taxpayers pay more taxes. In fact, as local property values increase, the State share of funding decreases.
