State Assistance:

Buna ISD currently received approximately half of the bond payment each year from State assistance.  Projections indicate that the District will receive approximately 31% of the combined new and existing bond payment from the State.  Therefore, State aid will increase by approximately $200,000 per year to help pay the debt payment.  Annual State Assistance adjusts based on local values and student attendance up to a maximum debt service tax rate of $0.29.
