NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

The Nacogdoches Independent School District is at risk of losing badly needed state funding.

Property valuations conducted by state appraisers are much higher than what local appraisers have on record.

The difference could block NISD from state revenue, so the central appraisal district has an appeal in the works.

In the meantime, some important items are cut in a proposed budget.  

"I'm having to build the budget on a lower amount, so we've got to cut somewhere and right now we're cutting from our facility acquisition construction, which is the money we use to repair roofs, replace our air conditioning, things like that,” said Lisa Barbarack, NISD’s chief financial officer.

A decision on the appeal could come as early as next week. 

Meanwhile, a reappraisal of NISD properties is expected. Valuations are likely to climb, and so could taxes.
