Below is a copy of the preliminary results of our Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) results for the 09-10 school year. I am pleased to report that once again EISD has achieved the rating of “Superior Achievement”. The FIRST system is designed to give school districts and the public an overview of how the district is doing with regards to finances.
As you can see, some of the indicators are yes/no and other indicators are rated on 5 point scale. A perfect score would be a total of 80. For the 09-10 school year EISD received 78 points. You can click on an indicator for more information.
In the coming months, EISD will hold a public hearing to discuss the financial situation of the district. The FIRST results will be a part of that hearing.
