Cedar Hill Voters Approve VATRE
Thank you Cedar Hill Voters!
Cedar Hill ISD Passes Voter-Approved Tax Rate Election
Thank you Voters!!!
We are so grateful that you took the opportunity to support teachers, scholars and campus security with your vote during the November 7th election.
Unofficial results from the Dallas County Elections Office, show CHISD's voter-approval tax rate election (VATRE) passed with 67% of the vote!
This is a watershed moment in the history of the Cedar Hill Independent School District. Thanks to our voters, CHISD can increase our teacher pay; which we believe will help retain teachers and provide a more equitable outcome for scholars!
In addition, CHISD will now have the funds needed to hire additional police officers to comply with HB 3 which requires armed security officers at every campus. Some districts have security officers, but it is imperative to have a police officer on each campus, and with your approval, CHISD elementary schools will soon have police officers.
The CHISD Board of Trustees and leaders want to express our sincere appreciation to all members of the Cedar Hill community who participated in the voting process. Your engagement and commitment to the well-being of our children are truly commendable.
Thank you to the City of Cedar Hill Mayor Stephen Mason, city staff, council members & their education committee for formally endorsing the district's VATRE. Thank you as well to the City of Cedar Hill Chamber of Commerce, All-Pro Dads, PTA Council and the other community groups who endorsed and supported this ballot proposition.
The Cedar Hill ISD remains dedicated to transparency and accountability in managing the additional funds, and we will keep our community informed about how the funds are being used.
With Tuesday tonight's election results, our young people are truly the big winners. By voting "for" in this election, you showed your support for our learners, teachers and education in Cedar Hill.
Thank you for being our partners, it is a great day to be a Longhorn!
