DENISON, Tex. -- Denison Independent School District officials say they may have to hold a rollback election. Superintendent Dr. Henry Scott says the district is not receiving all the funding it could from the state.

The Texas Legislature changed the way schools receive that money. As a result, most districts in Texas are operating in a deficit. Officials say the rollback election would make up for the deficit spending.

Dr. Scott says the school board is discussing when to call the election, but it could be as soon as October.

Bells, Whitewright, and Whitesboro ISD’s have already passed a rollback. Other area districts are considering it as well.
