Argyle ISD Needs Your Help

Throughout the 88th legislative session in Texas, and again in four special sessions, our leaders have failed to agree on legislation that would fully fund Texas public schools. We need action and we need it now. Please join us in asking Governor Abbott to call a fifth special session in order to prioritize public education funding!


  • Argyle ISD is one of few districts in the state that has received the Formula Transition Grant since 2019 and faces a significant funding cliff beginning with the 2024-25 fiscal year when FTG expires, 

  • Argyle ISD is still subject to losing approximately $250,000  via the Robin Hood formula of “recapture,”

  • And there has been NO CHANGE to the basic allotment despite 40-year record inflation.

Ask Governor Abbott below to call a fifth special session so our representatives can pass legislation that gets funds to public schools where they are desperately needed!

This letter will be sent on your behalf, asking Governor Abbott to TAKE ACTION:

To The Honorable Governor Abbott,

As a community member in Argyle ISD, I am concerned about the insufficient state funding formula that has not been changed in four years, despite 40 year record inflation. Our high-performing district is at risk of significant funding reductions which could impact AISD’s ability to appropriately plan for growth, as well as adequately offer award-winning programs and innovative student opportunities.

Additionally, we lose nearly a quarter of a million dollars per year to recapture and receive a great deal of funding from an expiring state Formula Transition Grant.

School districts in Texas need help and we are imploring you to call a fifth special session in order for our representatives to:

  • Increase the basic allotment to match inflation

  • Provide funding for teacher raises

  • Extend the Formula Transition Grant

  • Reform recapture.

Without meaningful change, AISD cannot maintain current operations or educational opportunities, nor adequately prepare for student growth.

We appreciate your support for Texas schools and teachers and we thank you for your leadership in the great state of Texas.
