Royse City ISD Superintendent warns of tough state finances

(Rockwall Herald Banner) – RCISD Superintendant Randy Hancock came back home after the last Commissioner’s Cabinet meeting with dire predictions for the state of educational funding statewide

“We’ve been told that the deficit may be as high as $12-15 billion,” Hancock said. “From the commissioner’s mouth, we’re now hearing that it could be as high as $28 billion.”

“If it is a $25-28 billion deficit, we’re in trouble. We’re in big trouble.”

Among other possible measures to deal with the economy, Hancock said that state superintendents are looking for relief from the state for many of the unfunded mandates that the districts are saddled with.
