SUPPORT HYER
 

Why We Fundraise

Close to 70% of every property tax dollar in the HPISD is "recaptured" by the State of Texas to be redistributed to property-poor school districts.  As a result, the HPISD faces a $7-$8 million budget gap each year.  Specifically, Hyer faces a $600,000 budget gap each year.  Hyer has fewer state funds per student as compared to many neighborhood school districts; our teachers on average make a few thousand dollars less than they would if they worked in other DFW school districts.  Each year, the PTA's fundraising events and programs make up this shortfall.  PTA fundraising and our community's commitment to education plays a crucial role in ensuring that Hyer can maintain the excellence in education we expect, and can to continue to attract the best and brightest teachers!

Where the Money Goes

Last year, the PTA gifted $963,000 to Hyer and the district.
