Six Years in a Row: Top Financial Rating

Most people are familiar with the annual ratings of “exemplary” or “recognized” that our campuses and school district receive from the Texas Education Agency. Many may not realize that Finance Departments receive annual state ratings too. That system is called School FIRST (Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas).

For the sixth year, C-FB ISD received the “Superior Achievement” rating. That means the district demonstrated the highest level of fiscal management. Our Finance Department earned a perfect score. And, we’ve received the highest rating every year since that the system has been operational.

C-FB ISD has a long of history of strong sound fiscal management. Our district has been recognized on the state and national levels for quality financial reporting. The district also has a strong bond rating from Standards & Poors.

As our positioning statement says, “We do not compromise high expectations for students and staff.”

In C-FB ISD, student achievement is our number one priority. And, we have a great instructional team, but we have other departments who contribute to high student achievement. The Finance Department team is one such department. Those team members have high expectations of sound fiscal and operational management.

They are valuable members of the C-FB ISD: an innovative leader in learning.

It’s only July! But, We’re Already Thinking About Back-to-School

While most people are still at the beach or hiking in the mountains, we in C-FB ISD are getting ready for our families to return for the 2009-10 school year. Our high school and middle school principals just returned from their summer vacations, and our elementary school principals will be back next week.

We just posted on our website, a wealth of back-to-school information for new families and our returning families. One big change for families is the immunization requirements. So, please check out the requirements to make sure your student is up-to-date before the first day of school on August 24.

For our new families, if you need to find out which school your student will attend, use our school locator service.

For all other back-to-school information, click on this link: Back-to-School in C-FB ISD.

As we get more details about new school year, we will be posting them on that page.

Remember, in C-FB ISD -- “We have one purpose: learning.”

We are C-FB ISD: an innovative leader in learning.
