Argyle ISD Needs Your Help

The 88th legislative session in Texas came to a close earlier this year without reform to school finance being accomplished by the Texas Legislature. However, as of November 8, 2023, Governor Abbott has called a fourth special session, again focusing on public school finance. It is now time to contact our legislators to ask them to pass legislation to fully fund our schools! 


  • 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 our legislators below to pass legislation that fully funds public education in this special session!

This letter will be sent on your behalf, asking our representatives to TAKE ACTION:

Dear State Legislator,

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 pass legislation that would:

  • 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.
