Residents in the Dallas school district will vote on a 13-cent tax increase this November.

The school board Thursday night approved a recommendation for an election on a proposal to raise the district’s maintenance and operating tax rate from $1.04 to $1.17 — the maximum state law allows. It's called a tax ratification election.

A Dallas school district tax ratification election will not be happening in November. The Dallas school board did not approve an election that would have asked voters for millions of dollars in additional funding.
