Why We Fundraise
Close to 70% of every property tax dollar in the HPISD is "recaptured" by the State of Texas to be distributed to property-poor school districts. As a result, the HPISD faces a $7 to $8 million budget gap each year. Specifically, Hyer faces a $650,000 budget gap each year. Hyer has fewer state funds per student as compared to many neighboring 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 educate 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 $515,000 to Hyer and HPISD to pay for essential programs and operation expenses.
