"New tax, budget adopted by Tidehaven school board" by: Jessica Shepard

Tidehaven ISD trustees approved a $17,460,924 budget for the 2019-2020 school year, Aug. 26.
   “We also adopted our tax rate for this year,” said TISD Superintendent Dr. Andrew Seigrist.  
   “Our maintenance and operations tax rate is 97 cents and the debt tax rate is $0.20 for a combined tax rate of $1.17. We’re also expecting 100% collection this year as well.”
   That means the proposed total tax rate is $1.17 per $100 valuation.
   That rate would generate $13,435 in local revenue per student.
   Last year’s total tax rate was $1.22 per $100 valuation.
   Also, Tidehaven is participating in the Texas Department of Agriculture food program and providing a free breakfast and lunch to every single student in the district.
