CISD Receives Top Financial Rating from State
Coppell ISD has earned the highest financial rating possible for its 2020-2021 financial accountability from the Texas Education Agency (TEA). In preliminary results released earlier this month, TEA announced CISD had received both an “A” Superior Rating and “100” Score in the School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) ratings, which are the highest scores possible. The district has received a “Superior” rating since 2002.
CISD Chief Financial Officer Diana Sircar gives credit to the district’s finance and accounting team for this acheivement. She says her team is committed to financial transparency and following stringent accounting standards to keep administrative costs low, which are some of the reasons for CISD receiving this top financial rating from this state.
“Our FIRST rating validates what we at CISD strive for, which is to be excellent stewards of our taxpayers’ money,” Sircar said. ”I am proud of our entire team for all of their hard work to ensure that we in CISD are in the best financial position possible to do what’s best for the children we serve in our district.”
