News and Announcements

Tax Ratification Election (TRE)

Giddings I.S.D. will hold a Tax Ratification Election (TRE) on July 8, 2015 to ask the voters to adjust the tax rate that funds their schools.

The proposed increase will raise the current maintenance and operations (M&O) tax rate – which funds salaries, utilities and day-to-day operations that directly support campuses – by 6 cents. This amount will be offset by a decrease in the interest and sinking (I&S) tax rate – which funds debt services – by 6 cents. The resulting election will have no effect on the overall tax rate which will remain at $1.40.
