3/8/2017 SCHOOL FINANCE DEPARTMENT, TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY 17 Hardships caused by decreasing values 1 2 3 Districts with declining values are disadvantaged because the state uses prior year property values in calculating the local share of the FSP.

In these cases, prior year values dont fully reflect the decline and exaggerate the districts ability to raise local tax revenue. When making payments to districts during the fiscal year, the state is required to assume the same estimated percentage increase in property values for all districts. Districts with declining values therefore experience significant under-payments which can negatively impact cash flow and overall funding levels. SCHOOL FINANCE DEPARTMENT, TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY 3/8/2017 18

Districts with Rapidly declining property values: a statewide perspective Districts marked in purple have declining property values Green is slowly declining Districts marked in red and orange still have increasing values and include the major urban areas of the state Overall the state still has increasing value

3/8/2017 SCHOOL FINANCE DEPARTMENT, TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY 19 Property Value Decline adjustments There is a provision in the TEC 42.2521(a) that provides for assistance for rapid property value decline, this provision requires an appropriation For the 2017-2018 biennium, the legislature appropriated $50 million for fiscal year 2018 and $25 million for fiscal 2019 3/8/2017

SCHOOL FINANCE DEPARTMENT, TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY 20 Adjustment for rapid property value decline 2018 $50 million appropriated for value decline in excess of 4% For fiscal 2018 The decline addressed is from TY 2015 -> TY 2016 on 2017 SOF All eligible districts had their property values adjusted, the SOFs rerun and a prorated amount added to other programs detail report. 3/8/2017 SCHOOL FINANCE DEPARTMENT, TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY
