Special election Dec. 16 to decide how to share wealth

 

Cuero School District residents will be asked to help the district decide a revenue question in the near future.
 
The district will have a special election on December 16. There will be two items on the ballot for voters to decide.
 
Both deal with Texas Education Code Chapter 41 better known as the ‘Robin Hood’ plan.
 
Some years ago the Cuero school district was considered a low wealth district. As a result, this district received considerable state revenue to help educate the students.
 
With the discovery of Eagle Ford Shale oil play in the last four years, now the district is considered ‘property wealthy’ and no longer needs state revenue assistance.
