Callisburg Independent School District officials recently announced that the district received a rating of “Superior Achievement” under Texas’ Schools FIRST financial accountability rating system. The Superior Achievement rating is the state’s highest, demonstrating the quality of Callisburg ISD’s financial management and reporting system.
Schools FIRST (Financial Accountability Rating System of Texas), is a financial accountability system for Texas school districts to ensure that school districts are held accountable for the quality of their financial management practices and achieve improved performance in the management of their financial resources. The system is designed to encourage Texas public schools to manage their financial resources better in order to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes. The system will also disclose the quality of local management and decision-making processes that impact the allocation of financial resources in Texas public schools.
“We are pleased with Callisburg ISD’s Schools FIRST rating,” said Callisburg ISD Superintendent Steve Clugston, “as it shows that our district is making the most of our taxpayers’ dollars. This rating shows that Callisburg schools are accountable not only for student learning, but also for achieving these results cost-effectively and efficiently.”
The School FIRST accountability rating system assigns one of four financial accountability ratings to Texas school districts, with the highest being “Superior Achievement,” followed by “Above-Standard Achievement” and “Standard Achievement” and “Substandard Achievement.”
Callisburg ISD will hold a public meeting Oct. 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the Callisburg High School Library. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss Callisburg’s State Financial Accountability System rating.
