Unitary Status Plan (in PDF) | En Español(PDF)
On September 6, 2018, we posted Court Order #2123 - Granting TUSD Partial Unitary Status.
On November 20, 2018, we posted Document #2147 - Special Mater Report on Magnet Schools per Order on Unitary Status.
On November 21, 2018, we posted #2149 - Court Order Approving TUSD's 18-19 Budget.
The total TUSD tax levy last year (2017) was $222,587,250 compared to $216,646,040 this year (2018) – a 3% decrease in the total TUSD levy, including desegregation. The desegregation levy has been frozen by statute at the $63M for several years.
With that decrease in the levy, the total TUSD tax rate decreased from $6.9218 per $100 NAV (Net Asset Value) last year to $6.5554 per $100 NAV this year.
You will see that last year, the desegregation levy was woven into Maintenance and Operations and Unrestricted Capital, so those two levies went down considerably this year with the desegregation levy now broken out of them and listed separately.
In September 2018, the Federal Judge recognized significant progress made by the District and awarded "partial unitary status" in many areas of the court-ordered plan, which is a major step toward "unitary status" which would lead to closure of the case.
