PISD to receive $1.5 million more in state funding

The Perryton School Board heard some good news for the district’s state funding with the recently enacted school funding bill.

Superintendent Dr. Tim Little told the board that the latest funding template from the state indicates the PISD will receive around $1.5 million in additional state funding in 2019-20.

He did caution that 30% of that must go to salary increases, but because of the discrepancies between the district’s current salary schedule and the state’s newly increased minimum salary schedule, it will more likely be 60%-70%.

Dr. Little said he and Chief Financial Officer Doug Kile are working on a new compensation plan to present at the next board meeting.

The district’s tax rate will also be reduced to 94 cents per $100 valuation, compared to the current $1.04 rate, with the new formula.

Xcel customers to see lower bills beginning in July

Lower costs for the natural gas Xcel Energy purchases to fuel area power plants, along with a greater reliance on clean wind energy, is leading Xcel Energy to reduce residential customer bills by 5% this summer.

Xcel Energy has filed an application with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to update the formula by which fuel charges are figured, and to lower the monthly fuel charge that is known as the fuel cost factor.

If approved, customers will see lower bills July

1. Additionally, Xcel Energy is planning to submit a proposal for a one-month refund later this summer that will return at least $16 million to Texas customers to account for a significant reduction in natural gas prices this spring.

Natural gas fuels close to 50 percent of the region’s electricity production at area power plants, with wind energy accounting for about 20 percent. The remainder is derived from coal and a small amount of solar.
