Bushland ISD is left wondering how they will avoid a deficit this school year. Bushland is continuing to stay positive after their proposed tax increase failed to pass on Tuesday.
The school district proposed an 8¢ increase for every $1,000 on property tax. They needed the money to make sure they did not need to take money out of their reserves or go into deficit. Now that the Tax Rollback Election did not pass, the school might be forced to make cuts.
