• As a public entity, the Ponder Independent School District operates partially on taxes collected from property owners within the district and partially on revenue provided by the state.

    The 2017-2018 district's tax rate is $1.4677 for each $100 of assessed value. $1.040 of the total tax rate is set aside for maintenance and operations. This allows for the day to day functioning of the school district. The remaining portion of the total tax rate, $0.4277, services the debt which the district has incurred.
