HISD is in the process of approving the budget for the 2017-18 School year. The final budget for 2017-18 is scheduled to be approved by the board on June 22, 2017. A budget workshop was presented to the board with some recommended changes in funding.
One of the recommendations was a significant reduction in Magnet Funding. The budget workshop presentation that was published on the HISD website is attached. Superintendent Carranza does not think that a reduction in Magnet funding will impact the results of the programs that are being funded.
Please take the opportunity to review the Budget Workshop Form. According to the proposal there are plans to have a meetings to solicit community input. Feel free to share any opinions or concerns with your HISD Board Member. Heights HS, District 1 board member is Ms. Anna Eastman. https://savehisdmagnets.wordpress.com
