Welcome to the financial transparency section of! 

When local residents pay their property taxes or vote to approve a bond issue, they’re trusting us to be good stewards of their tax dollars. It’s a responsibility that we take seriously.

Just one example of that... Since 2010, our board has saved taxpayers $8.7 million in interest payments by refinancing the bonds issued to build our facilities.

This page is another example of our commitment to financial responsibility. I invite you to learn how your tax dollars are providing students with an education that prepares them to excel in tomorrow’s world.

To finance the new schools needed to serve a growing number of students, Belton ISD has asked voters to approve issuing bonds. The district's last bond election was held in May 2012 when voters approved the construction of High Point Elementary, Chisholm Trail Elementary and North Belton Middle School. Those projects were completed for $3.1 million under budget.
