HISD school principals will have an extra $85 to spend per student next year. The board voted last night to restore $18.5 million in funding for the 2011-2012 school year.

The district made cuts before the legislature passed its school funding bill. The legislature's cuts weren't quite as deep as expected so the district had leftover money.

School principals will be able to spend the money at their own discretion.
