Strategy needed

A Keller ISD budget strategy is needed, but a July 16 article only discussed new $3.9 million spending for security (“KISD adopts budget strategy”).

The article did not mention Keller’s existing debt nor its plan for more debt.

The existing debt is $1.15 billion (with a “B”) according to our state’s Texas Bond Review Board — highest ISD debt in Tarrant County.

Further, a Dec. 23 report quoted officials that a November 2014 bond package would be about $143 million.

This bond would be piled on top of existing debt.

A proposed $3.9 million for security may be good, but it pales in comparison.

What is the Keller school district’s budget strategy for reducing its debt?
