A budget workshop was held for the upcoming fiscal year for the Dalhart Independent School District on Tuesday evening. The new fiscal year begins July 1, and the board has until June 30 to approve a budget. 

Although the board is required to approve a budget by June 30, a tax rate will not be set until August.

 “About 75 to 80 percent of our revenue comes from our local property tax. We work with the appraisal office to identify a tax rate, but the tax rate is in many sense set for us by the state,” district business manager Brian Walton said.
