LD12 Precinct Committeeman
The 2012-2013 Gilbert school year operated on a $300 million plus budget. The school district operates with funding from multiple sources, including state tax dollars, federal tax dollars, primary property taxes, secondary bond monies, the current override, some corporate/private funding, plus additional fees collected from parents (e.g., fees for certain classes, sports, parking, etc.). Throughout the year, Gilbert Unified School District receives hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations and equipment, including laptop computers. Citizens also donate money every year which they can deduct from their state tax return in the form of a tax credit. The School District uses this money for curricular activities.
