Board receives District debt report
Chief Financial Officer Randy Staats presented information regarding the District’s debt and debt management strategies ahead of the May 6 Bond Election. Round Rock ISD is the only school district in Texas to earn a AAA Bond Rating from both Fitch and Moody’s credit rating agencies, which affords unique opportunities to achieve lower interest rates when selling bonds, ensuring debt service rates for taxpayers remain low compared to neighboring school districts.
The projected Bond 2017 tax impact includes a projected increase of just over one penny on the debt service tax rate, which would not occur until 2020. The projected tax rate includes both new debt, but also existing debt, which declines over time.
