Superintendent's Message

Mr. Jay Tullos, CISD Superintendent
 
Canton ISD Taxpayers,

The Canton ISD Board of Trustees approved a bond refunding at the June Regular Meeting.  This action will save taxpayers more than 6 percent of remaining outstanding debt.
 
Canton ISD leveraged a low interest rate environment to the tune of $1.7 million of interest savings.
 
The pricing comes on the heels of Standard and Poor’s, a national credit agency, upgrading CISD from an “A” bond rating with a stable outlook to “A+” with a stable outlook.

School districts utilize refunding when bonds outstanding are eligible to be replaced with lower interest rate bonds – saving their local taxpayers future interest on such bonds.

The CISD refunding marks the fourth time this has been done in the last 7 years, with a cumulative savings to taxpayers of $5.5 million.  CISD has also Early Redeemed over $5 million in Bonds in the last 3 years, with a cumulative savings of $7.9 million.  This results in a total savings to CISD taxpayers in the amount of $13.4 million.

The Board continues to maintain strong financial practices and has adopted an aggressive debt management plan in hopes of preparing the District for future growth.

There is a balance to strike when considering how to structure voter-authorized debt. In a community like Canton, the balance between retiring debt early, ensuring capacity to fund student needs, and being cognizant of the tax impact on taxpayers can be quite difficult when coupled with future unknowns, such as property values.

The Board’s debt strategy is a blend of all aforementioned strategies, and CISD is well-positioned financially. CISD’s debt is largely current interest bonds (CIBs) with less than one percent being capital appreciation bonds (CABs). The tax rate has been managed to allow for the early retirement of debt, and a steady annual debt service amount (versus one that would lean upon continued property value growth) allows CISD to be well-positioned to handle future enrollment growth in an uncertain economy.
 
Respectfully,
 
Jay Tullos
Superintendent
