Week of August 29

The +10 Mindset
At BRISD, we are pushing our students and staff to embrace the +10 Mindset.  +10 is all about growth whether it be academic, athletic, extracurricular or personal growth.  This week, we would like to salute Theresa Wade who has overcome physical obstacles to be where she is today.  No matter her situation, Theresa's attitude of positivity is what pushes her to growth in her craft as an English teacher at BRHS and in her personal triumph.  Watch the video below to learn more about and to support Theresa in her journey.

Public Meeting on 2016-17 Proposed Budget & Tax Rate and Special Board Meeting
The Blue Ridge ISD Board of Trustees will have a special meeting at 6 PM on Monday, August 29, 2016.  The agenda contains the following items.

  1. Public Meeting on 2016-17 Proposed Budget and Tax Rate - The budget and tax rates are contained in Proposed Budget 2016-2017 link
  2. Adoption of 2016-2017 Budget
  3. Adoption of 2016-2017 Tax Rate
  4. Review and consider additional paraprofessional for special education.

Due to changes in state funding and a decrease in enrollment, we have created a proposed budget that will be $341,000 less than the budgeted amount from last year.  We feel confident that while revenue will be less, we will be able to provide the resources that students and teachers need to learn at high levels.

The proposed tax rate is currently $1.5846, but the recommended tax rate for approval will be $1.5715, which will be the exact same tax rate that we currently have.  Again, the recommendation for approval will be to keep the tax rate the same as it is currently today.
