Taxpayers in the Nacogdoches Independent School District will continue to benefit from a local homestead exemption on their school taxes. Interim Superintendent David Sharp is no longer recommending the exemption be eliminated. Monday afternoon Sharp told school board members a closer look at the state's new school funding plan shows there will be only a minor impact on local funding. "It does not warrant, it does not create a positive enough increase in your revenue in my opinion to take the steps as a district to do away with that homestead at this time," said Sharp. He should be replaced by July 10 by a permanent superintendent.
