Letter from Humble ISD Board Members

Posted by Texas Education on June 28, 2008

A Letter to the parents, employees, and taxpayers of Humble Independent School

Over the last several weeks, we have received literally thousands of e-mails from
you about the current financial situation of Humble ISD and next year’s budget.
Although we have tried to respond to as many of you as possible, we think that it
is important, as people elected by you and as trustees of your tax dollars and the
education provided by this district, to give you more detail about the district’s
current situation so that you know what we are up against. We decided that an
open letter is the best way to convey what we know.
It is beyond dispute that Humble ISD currently is facing a budget crisis. If we
continue current operations without change, Humble is faced with a projected
shortfall of $25 million for the 2008-09 school year. The district has made budget
cuts totaling over $17.5 million over the last seven years while at the same time
educating an additional 8,000 students, but these previous cuts were targeted to
limit the impact on education and how the district operates.
Indeed, many with children in the district should not have noticed a change in
service, and our student’s test scores are improving yearly. The cuts that we are
currently facing, however, will require ending some programs, classes and
extracurricular activities that Humble has offered for decades.
In short, the cuts we are being forced to make will be felt across the district and at
every level.

We are in this crisis because of the current way our state funds public education.
