Austin ISD Receives Superior Financial Integrity Rating from TEA

Austin ISD received a 98 of 100 Financial Integrity Rating from the Texas Education Agency for 2020, displaying the district’s high standards for fiscal responsibility.
The Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas was created by the Texas Education Agency for school districts in 1999. This directed the Commissioner of Education, in consultation with the Comptroller's Office, to develop and implement a financial accountability rating system for school districts in Texas.
The Texas Education Agency implemented the rating system beginning in 2002 to improve the management of school district financial resources.
Since then, AISD has received some of the highest ratings available to Texas public schools. Austin ISD has also maintained its certification in the Texas Comptroller’s Transparency Star program for meeting a high standard of online transparency. This recognition is extended to local government entities that provide clear, consistent information about public spending.
Once the rating is given, each district is required to hold a public meeting outlining the district's rating and allowing community members to comment. This year the meeting was held during a regular board meeting on September 28th.
We are #AISDProud to receive a superior Financial Integrity Rating with a score of 98 out of 100.
