Proposed Texas Budget Cuts Will Eliminate Technology Allottment

The proposed budget cuts from the initial House Appropriations Bill call for a complete elimination of the Technology Allotment Fund for local districts. Currently, districts receive $30 per student based on their Average Daily Attendance Rate.

For a small district like Fort Sam Houston ISD, with roughly 1250 students, that adds up to $37,500. Not a huge chunk of change, but a factor nonetheless. I was at a San Antonio Technology Directors' meeting this morning and for some of our larger districts in the city, this cut will have a HUGE impact on their tech budgets.

There are many more programs that will be affected as well. It's not looking good......
