We have talked on several occasions about target revenue. While I have made the statement that EISD has one of the lowest target revenues in our area, I have not provided the details. Below is a chart with target revenues from several areas schools. The districts in Henderson County were included as well as districts that EISD competes with in extracurricular activities and districts in surrounding counties.
Two points about this graph: 1) All the districts listed are provided with more revenue for their students than Eustace ISD; 2) By definition, any such system is inherently inequitable to our students and to our taxpayers. While the State of Texas may be facing a budget shortfall, there is no reason for such a funding system to continue. Now is the time for our state leaders to come together to correct such disparities.
