NZISD earns ‘A’ accountability rating

Posted

North Zulch Independent School District (NZISD) officials announced that the district received a “Superior Achievement” rating (or an ‘A’ rating) under the state’s School FIRST financial accountability rating system.

“We are very pleased with the district’s School FIRST rating,” said NZISD Superintendent Alan Andrus. “This rating shows that our district is making the most of our taxpayers’ dollars. It shows that NZISD schools are accountable not only for student learning, but also for achieving these results cost-effectively and efficiently.”

The “Superior Achievement” rating is the highest possible in the state.

This is the 17th year of School FIRST (Financial Accountability Rating System of Texas), a financial accountability system for Texas school districts developed by the Texas Education Agency in response to Senate Bill 875 of 76th Texas Legislature in 1999 and amendments under House Bill 5, 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013. The primary goal of School FIRST is to achieve quality performance in the management of school districts’ financial resources, a goal made more significant due to the complexity of accounting associated with Texas’ school finance system.

The Texas Education Agency assigned one of four financial accountability rating to Texas school districts, with the highest being “A” for “Superior Achievement,” followed by “B” for “Above-Standard Achievement,” “C” for “Standard Achievement” and “F” for “Substandard Achievement.”
