CCCCSD 'financially sound'

BY MELISSA PERNER

Like other districts in Texas, CCCCSD is waiting to see what the Texas Legislature will do in terms of school finance. During the April 19 regular board meeting, Superintendent Raul Chavarria said “we can only prepare for the worst and hope for the best. The good news is financially we are sound right now.”

At the same time the board meeting was being held, representatives in the Texas House were debating and discussing public schools and school finance.

House Bill 21 will now go to the Senate, where it could face possible opposition.
