DENISON, Tex. ― Denison ISD administrators are already putting the extra rollback money there to good use, thanks to the October 4th election that raised the tax rate to $1.27. Denison ISD will have an extra $2.7 million.

Administrators say the money will be used for security and technology upgrades, construction, and employee raises. The funds will also be used to help wipe out an $800,000 deficit.

"I think our teachers and other employees appreciate the fact that the community came out and voted in favor of the election. It was a 2-to-1 win, so it wasn't just barely getting by," Denison superintendent Dr. Henry Scott says.

Scott says it was crucial for the district to get the extra funding.
