SAISD earns more multiple honors for fiscal excellence

The District continues to be recognized for its quality of budgeting.

Most recent accolades include the Certificate of Achievement in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada and a rating of superior from the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas.

The Certificate of Achievement is GFOA's highest recognition for governmental accounting and financial reporting.

Likewise, a superior FIRST rating is the Texas Education Agency's highest ranking for fiscal accountability. The system was designed to encourage Texas public schools to manage their financial resources better in order to provide the maximum allocation possible for instructional purposes.

These are just the latest of numerous honors SAISD has earned in 2012 for fiscal excellence.

The others include the: Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting and Meritorious Budget Award, both presented by the Association of School Business Officials; Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from GFOA; and the Leadership Circle Award from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.
