Unofficial Results: Voters Say No to Katy ISD, Fort Bend ISD Voter-Approval Tax Rate Elections

(FORT BEND COUNTY) – According to unofficial election results, voters did not pass either Katy ISD or Fort Bend ISD’s Voter-Approval Tax Rate Elections. The TREs were required for both districts to maintain their current tax rates, which would generate more money for the districts due to increased property valuations.


State law requires voter approval for school district tax rates that will generate more money than the previous year.


Katy ISD was asking voters to maintain the district’s $1.35 tax rate and said the additional revenue would be used to provide teacher and staff pay raises.


In Fort Bend ISD, the district asked voters to maintain the current tax rate of $1.21. Officials said the additional funds collected due to increased property valuations would be used to provide additional safety measures, increased compensation for teachers and staff and allow for long-serving staff to receive years-of-service supplemental pay for their “commitment and dedication to FBISD.”
