LISD Board approves 2018-2019 budget


The Lockhart Independent School District Board of Trustees voted to approve the 2018-2019 budget totaling $58.2 million at its regular meeting Monday night.

The Board and district administration held four previous planning sessions and budget workshops throughout the spring leading up to the final budget approval.

The tax rate will be presented to the Board for adoption in August after Caldwell County Appraisal District certifies the values on July 25, 2018.  

“The leadership team and the Board have worked closely together since March to review district needs and engage in deep discussions about the budget,” said Interim Superintendent Kimberly Brents. “We are grateful for the Board’s leadership and support throughout the process and feel well-prepared for the 2018-2019 school year.”

Lockhart ISD has 5,900 students and 740 staff. To learn more about LISD, visit www.lockhartisd.org.
