Commerce ISD Superintendent Charlie Alderman says the CISD other small-to-medium size school districts will benefit from the Texas Legilsature's actions on school-finance reform in the recently completed session, but the details of the legislation is still unclear.  On property-tax reform, Alderman says he understands that the owner of a $200,000 home will save about $140 per year.  Alderman says the Commerce ISD's priority in receiving its share of the additonal $6.5 billion in school funding will be salary increases for teachers and other personnel.
