Local school districts are ironing out the wrinkles in their budgets caused by the implementation of a school finance reform bill.

Because of House Bill 3, the $11.6 billion public education finance reform measure, Bell County’s three most populous school districts — Killeen, Belton and Temple — delayed approval of the biggest piece of their budgets: compensation.

Cheers to our state legislators for giving Texas educators a well deserved raise! Jeers to our local school district(KISD) for not keeping their promise, as stated in their promotion of the $426 million bond package, to use some of the monies to give their teachers raises. I cannot claim to be a lawyer but, would this action(lie) be a legal breach of some sort? Can a District make promises such as this one to assist in the “persuading” of its staff of employees and the deferral public and renig when the rubber meets the road?
