      Gov. Perry announced today that he’ll provide an incentive for school
      districts that pool resources and save money by cutting administrative
      costs and divert money to classrooms, according to the governor’s office.
      Districts would receive a grant from the state equaling 10 percent of their
      total savings from the first year.
      “With the current economic situation, it is important for school districts
      to look for ways to work more efficiently and maximize their funding,”
      Texas Education Commissioner Robert Scott said in a news release on Gov.
      Perry’s web site.


      No word in the release on where the incentive money would come from or
      whether the grants could be retroactive considering school districts have
      already passed budgets for the 2010-11 school year and many included
      significant cuts. Budgets are so lean that roughly 50 percent of districts
      adopted deficit budgets this year, according to Texas Association of School
      Board Officials.
