Affordable Housing in a Good School District

You’ve found the perfect school district for your child, but home prices seem to be through the roof! What can you do?

Often, when home ownership in a particular area is simply out of reach, renting may be an option that should be considered. This is especially true when relocating to an area for a certain period of time, such as your child’s high-school years. In that case, it doesn’t always make sense to get a 10, 20, or even 30 year home mortgage. Additionally, home prices themselves may be too high, or credit could be an obstacle.

You can still find affordable housing in a high-quality school district. Tucked in small enclaves, or resting on large estate-sized lots on the outskirts, you can find nice homes for rent, often at prices that are quite affordable.

SweetHomeDFW.com offers affordable homes throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex for sale and for rent. We have properties available in the Godley ISD as well as in Joshua and Weatherford.

The Godley School District spends $5,276 per student for academic programs and $9,618 per student for all school functions. Additionally, the Godley Independent School District officials announced that the district has received a rating of “Superior Achievement” under Texas’ new Schools FIRST financial accountability rating system for the 2011-2012 school year. The Superior Achievement rating is the state’s highest, demonstrating the quality of Godley ISD’s financial management and reporting system. Godley was one of three schools in Johnson County that met all 70 of the indicators on the rating system. (See Cleburne Times Review article )

The Schools FIRST financial accountability system for Texas school districts was developed by the Texas Education Agency in response to Senate Bill 875 of the 76th Texas Legislature in 1999. The primary goal of Schools FIRST is to achieve quality performance in the management of school districts’ financial resources, a goal made more significant due to the complexity of accounting associated with Texas’ school finance system.
