Sales tax revenue still up

Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced June 10 he will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts $690.4 million in local sales tax allocations for June, 11.7 percent less than in June 2019. These allocations are based on sales made in April by businesses that report tax monthly.

Transportation Troubles

School may be out for the summer at Groesbeck ISD, but board members and administrators are working hard in their absence to plan a successful approaching school year, despite continued education/transportation restructuring as a result of COVID-19. In a lengthy ZOOM video conference meeting on Monday, June 15, the board spent more than half the meeting learning about the pros and cons of dual credit through Navarro Junior College and dual enrollment through UT On-Ramps, both of which are offered at GISD. For details about this presentation and related board decisions regarding the future of dual credit/enrollment at GHS, keep an eye on next week’s edition of the Groesbeck Journal. The board also discussed changes and safety measures that will be necessary regarding transportation in the (likely to occur but not yet confirmed) summer school session, and the regular 2020- 2021 school year.
