Chapter 41 School Districts (so called because laws pertaining to this issue are found in Chapter 41 of the Texas Education Code) are those with property wealth per student, as measured by Weighted Average Daily Attendance (WADA), above a certain threshold defined in law. Districts with property wealth above certain levels are required to “share the wealth” through the “Robin Hood” school finance plan by paying “recapture.” Recapture is the primary means by which Chapter 41 school districts send local property tax revenue to the State for redistribution among other districts.
