Gold Leadership Circle Award

by Coy Holcombe.  

EISD was recently notified by Susan Combs, State Comptroller, that the district has received the Gold Leadership Circle Award for 2011. This award is based on the transparency level of the district as reflected through the district's website. School districts (and other governmental entities) have the opportunity to submit their website for evaluation by the comptroller's office. The level of award is dependent on the number of points awarded. Out of 20 possible points, EISD scored 18. This is the second year in a row that EISD has received the Gold Leadership Award.
