Austin, TX—The Austin Independent School District has earned the Top Performing District award for its management of business operations services in 2011 from the Council of the Great City Schools. This recognition is based on key performance measures that demonstrate efficient and effective use of resources in the critical areas of child nutrition, maintenance and operations, safety and security and student transportation.

"We are honored by the recognition from a national organization that represents the needs of urban public schools," Lawrence Fryer, Chief Operations Officer, said. "Our goal is to ensure every department within the district is managed efficiently, so we can deliver the best possible education to our students."

The Council of the Great City Schools is the only national organization exclusively representing the needs of urban public schools. The organization, which comprises 67 large-city school districts, provides a network of resources to collectively address challenges of urban districts.
