Carroll ISD is a property-wealthy, Chapter 41 (Robin Hood) district. This means that the school funding formula caps the amount of property value tax collections that Carroll ISD is able to retain for expenses. From 2001 to the 2019-2020 budget, Carroll ISD’s total recapture payments back to the State to fund less affluent districts totals $304.5 million.
The Dragon Classic Committee is passionate about helping CISD fund this deficit. Fund raising began in 2018 with only two months to organize the Classic and $10,000 was given back to the district. In 2019 the Dragon Classic Committee is proud to report that $40,000 was donated back to Carroll ISD. The goal for 2020 is $80,000 and we can’t do it without your participation and support. We would be honored if you would consider joining us for the 7th Annual Dragon Classic on September 24th to help us Protect The Tradition and bridge this funding gap!
