Case Study: Temple Independent School District

When Temple Independent School District was faced with the closure of their federal funding at the end of their Cycle 6 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) grant, program leadership turned to the voters for help in the form of a Tax Rati cation Election (TRE). By developing a program with community support, district employee buy-in, and essential services that would be missed at the conclusion of the grant, the voters overwhelming approved the measure in June 2014.
